Jo Daviess High Speed Arrest

A Warren, Illinois man was arrested over the weekend following a high speed chase through Jo Daviess and Stephenson counties. A release from the sheriff’s office says just before 9 Saturday night a deputy attempted to pull over a vehicle on Route 78. The vehicle did not stop and took off at a high rate of speed. The driver, later identified as 29 year old Jarrett Hiatt, led the deputy down Route 20 and into Stephenson County. During the pursuit Hiatt’s vehicle reached speeds of 115 mph in a 55 mph zone. It also traveled the wrong way on the highway several times. Hiatt finally lost control of his vehicle and crashed on the ramp at Route 20 and 26. Hiatt jumped out of the vehicle and fled, but was apprehended a short time later. During a search of the vehicle the deputy found a crystal like substance, which field-tested positive for methamphetamine. Hiatt is charged with unlawful possession of meth and aggravated fleeing or attempting to elude a peace officer.
