READLYN, Iowa (AP) - A motorcyclist in northeast Iowa faces several charges in connection to a speeding pursuit that ended with a damaged squad car.

The Bremer County Sheriff’s Office said Monday that 20-year-old Alexander Carl Buss, of Tripoli, has been charged with several counts including eluding police, excessive speed and driving on the wrong side of the highway. Court records do not list an attorney.

Authorities say a deputy tried to stop Buss on Friday as he rode his motorcycle near the community of Readlyn. The motorcycle was clocked at 82 mph in a 55 zone.

Buss is accused of accelerating his motorcycle to excess speeds of 130 mph. It eventually crashed into a squad car owned by Tripoli police.

Buss was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. No one else was hurt.
