CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Police said two Cedar Rapids men led officers on a high speed chase early Tuesday morning.
According to the Cedar Rapids Police Department, officers spotted a blue Oldsmobile with no plates at the intersection of 16th Street and Bever Avenue SE shortly after midnight. Police said there were two people in the vehicle. Initially, a 17-year-old boy was behind the wheel and 30-year-old Patrick L. Bose was in the passenger seat.
Police said they attempted to pull the car over at 15th Street and Washington Avenue and the driver turned down 15th. Officers said Bose and the boy swapped seats and Bose took off at a high rate of speed, hitting 70 mph on 15th Street.
Bose continued onto Mount Vernon road, running a red light in the process. Police said Bose continued on Camburn Court to Eighth Avenue to 16th Street to First Avenue, where Bose turned the car’s headlights off.
The pursuit continued on 19th Street and Bose ran stop signs at B Avenue and E Avenue northeast, police said. Police said Bose went westbound on E Avenue to 16th Street. Bose was unable to negotiate a sharp curve on H Street, jumped the curb, reentered the street and spun out of control.
At that point, police said Bose jumped into the backseat of the car and threw out eight baggies of marijuana.
Both Bose and the juvenile were apprehended at the scene. Bose faces charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, eluding and a host of traffic violations. He was taken to the Linn County Jail.
The juvenile was cited and released on a single count of failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.
