SIDNEY, Iowa (WOWT) - Fremont County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man they said evaded deputies as they attempted to pull him over early Wednesday morning.

Deputies arrested David Overbeck, 24, of Queen City, Mo., who may now facing charges of evading authorities in addition to being a fugitive from Nebraska.

At 1:37 a.m., deputies attempted to pull over the driver of a 2002 Buick for “an equipment violation” near 330th Avenue and Highway 2, according to the sheriff’s news release. Deputies said he stopped after attempting to evade spike strips on Highway 275 near Filmore Street.

He fled from authorities, the release states, reaching speeds of more than 90 miles per hour along the highway.

“Overbeck is being held without bond, pending extradition to Nebraska,” the release states.

According to the Nebraska Department of Justice, Overbeck was wanted on a probation violation issued in March. Records state he was on probation after a conviction on a drug charge, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute; and for making terroristic threats.
