Iowa! Full speed ahead?
However, as the deputy approached Thurman's car, police say the driver peeled away and sped down Interstate 380.
Police pursued Thurman, who weaved through traffic at speeds of 120 mph. Thurman passed vehicles on the shoulder and nearly caused a semi to jackknife, police told the Iowa City Press-Citizen.
He must've trained on Lake Shore Drive.
The dangerous chase came to an end when Thurman crashed his car into a ditch. However, that didn't stop him from trying to run down the approaching deputy, police said.
When a tire popped off Thurman's car, the deputy pointed his gun at the driver and ordered him out of the car.
Thurman was arrested and faces several charges, including drunken driving, reckless driving, eluding a police officer, assaulting a police officer with a weapon, and possession of drug paraphernalia, reports the Iowa City Press-Citizen.
