Remsen Man Faces Felony Eluding Charge After Orange City Police Chase

Orange City, Iowa — A Remsen man faces several charges, one of them a felony, after a pursuit through Orange City early Saturday morning.

The sheriff’s office says it started when a deputy tried to stop 24-year-old Angel Manuel of Remsen for driving too fast on Jackson Avenue north of Orange City.  Manuel allegedly continued driving, eluding the deputy, driving southbound on various streets through Orange City, and eventually stopped on the south end of Orange City.

During the investigation, authorities suspected that Manuel was under the influence of alcohol.

Manuel was transported to the Sioux County Jail, where he was charged with eluding, a class D felony. If convicted, Manuel could face up to five years in prison. He also faces misdemeanor charges of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, open container of alcohol in a vehicle, operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s license, three counts of speeding, five stop sign violations, and failure to yield right of way.

He was booked into the Sioux County Jail in Orange City, but was released the same day after posting a $5000 bond.
