SLATER, Iowa (KCCI) -- The Story County Sheriff’s Office released dashcam video showing a driver of a pickup truck barreling through a 25 mph zone at 111 mph before being arrested.

Just before 11 p.m. Oct. 16, Melvin Dameron, 35, of Des Moines, blew through a four-way stoplight on Highway 210 going westbound, authorities said.

The pursuit lasted for miles and ended up in Boone County.

“I don’t know that it’s a record, but it’s certainly one of the top ones I’ve seen in my 26 years of law enforcement service,” said Capt. Barry Thomas, with the Story County Sheriff’s Office. “We were lucky we had a deputy there that night before he hurt somebody.”
