A Muscatine man was arrested after almost striking a person with his car.

Morris Nunn, 46, was charged Wednesday with third-degree theft and eluding.

Nunn allegedly filled his vehicle’s gas tank with 10.81 gallons of gas and proceeded to drive away without paying. Police located Nunn’s vehicle going east on Highway 6. When they attempted to stop Nunn’s vehicle, he drove off, reaching speeds of 80 mph in a 25 mph zone. Police officials later found Nunn’s car after a person called because he almost got hit by a speeding car. Nunn was located in a parking ramp at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, the complaint said.

Third-degree theft is an aggravated misdemeanor. Eluding is a Class-D felony.
