Waterloo Man Taken Into Custody After Chase
Authorities have taken a Waterloo man into custody, after he ran out of gas during a chase into Bremer County.
The incident happened when a Waterloo Police officer tried to pull over a vehicle for a traffic infraction near Newell and Ankeny Streets around 2 AM Wednesday (July 11, 2018).
Officials said the driver, who they later identified as Eric Livingston, took off and led police on a pursuit, sometimes reaching over 100 miles an hour.
The chase continued north on U.S. Highway 63, into Bremer County. That's where Livingston's gas, and his luck, ran out. The car came to a stop just south of Iowa Highway 3.
Livingston then fled on foot, and was able to avoid officers for several hours, until a Bremer County deputy took him into custody
Livingston was charged with eluding, interference with official acts, driving with a suspended license, and a parole violation.
He was also transported back to Waterloo.
