Fri 1-22-2016 []

(Spencer)-- A Primghar man faces multiple charges following early Wednesday that started when a Clay county deputy attempted a traffic stop in the 1000 mile of 350th Street. The Clay County Sheriff’s Office says it happened around 1:45 a.m. when the driver refused to obey the officer’s command, leading authorities on a pursuit southbound onto 100th Avenue before turning onto another county road. The pursuit continued for about 11 miles into O’Brien county. It ended after a tire deflation device was deployed.    

The driver, 28-year-old Madison Selzer of Primghar, was arrested on charges of having a suspended driver’s license, eluding, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, driving under suspension, no insurance and no license plate. Selzer was being held in the Clay county jail pending a court appearance on traffic violations.    

The case remains under investigation and authorities say additional charges are pending in O’Brien county.
