High speed chase near Nashua leads to arrest of wanted Miami man

The Iowa State Patrol says authorities were able to stop the suspect's auto after deflating the tires with a set of stop sticks.

Iowa State Patrol attempted to stop a vehicle that appeared to be speeding on Thursday, April 5 on Highway 218 near Nashua around 9:30 a.m.

Instead of stopping, however, Birch said the driver, 58-year-old Stephen A. Tremblay sped up, reaching "criminal speeds" and leading Matheson on a pursuit through several rural towns.

The chase goes on at slower speeds until a trooper performs a pit maneuver causing the auto to spin and come to a stop with the bottom in flames. Law enforcement later learned he was wanted in Dade County, Florida, for second degree murder.

Briggs was transported to Freestone County Jail with a State Jail Third Degree Felony charge for Evading Arrest.

Assisting with this pursuit and arrest were the Iowa Department of Transportation, the sheriff's offices in Bremer, Chickasaw, and Black Hawk counties, and the Janesville Police Department.
