SE Iowa Man Arrested after Pursuit


A southeast Iowa man with a warrant was arrested last week after a pursuit with law enforcement.

31-year-old Bryce Gaylord of Eldon faces charges in Washington County for domestic abuse assault, third or subsequent offense, a Class D felony. He has also been charged with eluding (serious misdemeanor), possession of drug paraphernalia (simple misdemeanor), and interference with official acts (simple misdemeanor).

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were in pursuit of a brown Chevy Blazer without license plates at 8:49 AM on Friday. Gaylord was identified as the driver of the vehicle who also had multiple warrants. The chase, which started on Highway 78 East, came to an end near 270th Avenue south of Ollie when Gaylord brought the vehicle to a stop.

Gaylord was taken into custody and transported to the Jefferson County Jail where he is being held on a $5,000 cash-only bond.

Court records say Gaylord has a preliminary hearing scheduled for January 24th.
