Mason City, IA – A high-speed chase in Mason City on Wednesday has led to the arrest of a Charles City man. Numerous charges have been filed against the driver.
22-year-old Andrew Kroeze was driving his Oldsmobile Cutlass when an officer attempted to pull him over for speeding and a stop sign violation at Highway 122 and Pennsylvania Ave. He then sped off out of town, but would eventually turn around and head back into city limits. This all started around 3:48 a.m.
Speeds would hit 100 miles per hour before an officer would intentionally hit Kroeze while he was traveling eastbound on Highway 122. This maneuver ended the pursuit.

He received felony charges of eluding and possess and convey contraband into a correctional facility; misdemeanors of escape from custody in Webster County, parole and probation revocation/violation, and possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
