A brief chase yesterday (Sunday) in Black Hawk County ended with some “off-road” travel. Black Hawk County deputies say they spotted a Waterloo man who was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant. They tried to pull him over a couple miles east of Waterloo but he took off and led them on a brief chase before wrecking his vehicle in a yard and taking off on foot.

Chased into a cornfield, he didn’t make it far before deputies caught up and arrested him. Deputies say in that car they found more than seven grams of methamphetamine. Twenty-five-year-old Matthew Wayne Sinclair faces charges of driving while barred and eluding as well as possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver.
