DUNKERTON (KWWL) - A Dunkerton man on a motorcycle led deputies on a high-speed chase on Highway 63 and then Dunkerton Road with a top speed of 134 miles per hour before finally being apprehended.

Andrew Timothy Harmon, 22, of Dunkerton, was arrested and charged with the following:
  • failure to yield to an emergency vehicle,
  • excessive speed - 134 in a 65,
  • excessive speed - 98 in a 65,
  • reckless driving,
  • failure to have a valid license,
  • unsafe passing,
  • failure to obey a stop sign,
  • passing in a no-passing zone, and
  • failure to give continuous turn signal
Harmon was on Highway 63 when a deputy attempted to pull him over just north of Denver for going 98 miles per hour in a 65-mph zone at around 1:10 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Bremer County Sheriff's Office

Harmon then led deputies on a chase southbound on Hwy. 63 and then east on Dunkerton Road, where he was clocked at speeds up to 134 miles per hour -- more than double the speed limit, according to deputies.

Harmon then parked the motorcycle behind a house and tried walking away, according to Capt. Rick Abben with the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office.

According to Iowa court records, Harmon was convicted of speeding three different times since September, with the most recent conviction in April. He was also convicted of failure to yield on May 18.
