An Illinois man going through the area Wednesday afternoon (3/31) may not have wanted to be bothered by law enforcement—even though he was reportedly travelling at speeds of over 100 miles an hour. The Wapello County Sheriff’s Office says it was told around 1:15pm Wednesday by the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office about a car that was trying to elude them and was headed into Eldon on Highway 16. The driver, 28-year-old John Broeksmit of Dwight, Illinois, eluded law enforcement through Wapello and Mahaska Counties. He was clocked at 90 miles an hour by Mahaska County law enforcement, according to police scanners. Spike strips were used at several locations, but didn’t stop Broeksmit. After nearly an hour, Broeksmith finally did stop at the Monroe exit at Highway 163. He was taken into custody without incident. Wapello County law enforcement has filed criminal complaints against Broeksmit for eluding and interference with official acts.
