While passing Highway 82 speeds reached approximately 135 miles per hour.
Near SE 650 Road, Collins, the motorcycles passed a truck driven by Schies that was pulling a trailer with four wheelers. The truck switched lanes in front of a deputy and prevented the deputy from continuing after fleeing motorcycles. One deputy stopped following the motorcycles and attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the truck. Schies failed to yield to the deputy’s emergency lights and sirens and refused to pull over for several miles.
Near the Polk County line, Schies slammed on his brakes and came to a complete stop in the middle of the lane. A felony traffic stop was conducted and Schies was taken into custody and later released pending a formal charge.
