Man facing numerous charges following Sunday car chase in Burlington

A Burlington man is behind bars following a Sunday night pursuit.

The Des Moines County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy tried to stop a vehicle that was driven by 26 year old Zachary Allen Judd for multiple traffic violations at Curran and Agency streets. According to a media release, Judd failed to stop his vehicle and tried to elude the deputy.

A chase ensued until Judd left his vehicle in the 500 block of South Garfield Avenue and ran away, according to the release. He was arrested in the 500 block of South Marshall Street after a brief search of the area. Investigators say Judd resisted arrest and a deputy received “minor bodily injury” while taking him into custody.

According to the release, Judd caused damage to multiple fences with his vehicle and while on foot.

He is charged with eluding, a Class D felony; second-degree criminal mischief, a Class D felony; interference with official acts, a serious misdemeanor; two counts of possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine and marijuana), both serious misdemeanors; driving while barred, an aggravated misdemeanor; and no insurance.

Judd was taken to the Des Moines County Correctional Center and is being held on a $5,000 bond. The investigation is ongoing with additional charges pending.
