A local man has been accused of trying to elude police.

Keegan Feeney, 19, 101 Shrader Road, was accused Jan. 26 with eluding and OWI.

Iowa City police attempted to pull over Feeney’s vehicle for driving without headlights or taillights, but when officers activated their emergency lights, Feeney reportedly accelerated to get away. He was traveling several mph over the speed limit, and eventually stopped after several blocks, the police complaint said. Feeney then allegedly tried to flee on foot from the police but was apprehended a couple of blocks away.

Feeney showed signs of impairment, and he reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol prior to driving.

Eluding is a Class-D felony. OWI is a serious misdemeanor.
