JOHNSON COUNTY (KWWL) -

A Cedar Rapids man is facing a number of charges after leading state troopers on a high-speed chase Monday night.

Criminal complaints state that Jordan Fetter, of Cedar Rapids, was riding his motorcycle and was turning north onto Interstate 380 when a state trooper saw him cut into the left lane before accelerating rapidly. The trooper clocked Fetter traveling at 90 mph and then again at 119 mph before the trooper activated his lights.  The complaint said Fetter looked back at the trooper and then accelerated again, passing between cars. He was clocked again near the North Liberty exit, this time reaching 144 mph and then once more at 151 mph.

The trooper then passed Fetter and was able to get in front of him, blocking his motorcycle to get him to decelerate. According to the trooper, Fetter could be heard yelling, "move, my mom's dying". Blocking Fetter, the trooper was able to get him down to 2 mph when Fetter then bump the trooper's rear bumper and tipped his bike over. The state trooper then exited the car and while Fetter was backing away, pulled out his taser. He refused to back down and the trooper released the taser on him before arresting him.

The complaint said that during the arrest search, Fetter admitted to having drugs and a gun in his backpack. Inside, a handgun, brass knuckles, syringes, and meth were found.

Fetter is currently being held in the Johnson County Jail and was charged with possessing a controlled substance and being in control of firearm by a felon.
