Randalia man accused of trying to hit officers’ cruisers during chase

911 Emergency response police car speeding to scene of crime

Decorah, Iowa (AP) – A 24-year-old man is accused of trying to hit officers’ patrol cruisers during a chase.

Zachary Willie, of Randalia, is charged with four felony counts of assault on a police officer and related crimes stemming from Thursday morning’s chase. It began in Fayette County and ended in Winneshiek County.

Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for Willie.

The Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Office says Willie sped away from an officer trying to make a traffic stop in West Union and raced north. The Sheriff’s Office says Willie’s rammed one cruiser and tried to hit several others during the chase, which ended in a farm field.
