Eluding Charge For Illinois Man

An Illinois man was arrested this past weekend after he led Dubuque police on a high speed chase that reached speeds of over 100 mph. A police report made available Tuesday says 40 year old Chad Jones of Waukegan was taken into custody Saturday morning along Highway 20 near Epworth. Jones is charged with eluding. At around 7 am a Dubuque police officer clocked Jones doing 69 mph on Dodge Street. When the officer attempted to stop Jones he accelerated and the pursuit was on. Jones led authorities down Dodge Street/Highway 20 west reaching speeds in excess of 118 mph. After a short time police called off the pursuit because of safety concerns. In addition to the eluding charge Jones was issued several traffic citations including failure to respond to a red light, reckless driving and leaving the scene of a crash. During the pursuit Jones struck another vehicle.
