A Chicago man is behind bars in Muscatine County following a Sunday night police chase.

The Muscatine County Sheriff’s Office says just after 8:30 Sunday night, deputies attempted to pull over 22 year old Keshawn Hill. Investigators say the deputies wanted to pull the vehicle over for going 20+ mph over the speed limit near Taylor.

The Sheriff's Office says Hill refused to stop and a pursuit began. Stop sticks were deployed on Highway 61 to stop the car and the sticks were able to pop one tire that fell off the car. The car then entered the ditch on Highway 61 between Bidwell and Tipton Road.

Investigators say once in the ditch, Hill exited the car and left the area. He was the only person in the car. According to officials, the car was reported stolen out of Oak Lawn PD in Illinois.

Hill was taken into custody a short time later and is being charged with possession of a controlled substance, interference, felony eluding and 1st-degree theft.
