Just before 12:30am, a Linn County Sheriff's deputy attempted to pull over a car being driven 77 miles an hour in a 55 mile an hour speed zone on Wright Brothers Boulevard, south of Fairfax.
The driver refused to stop, and a chase began, reaching speeds of 105 miles an hour.
The pursuit went south on Highway 151, where the driver finally stopped in Walford. He was identified as 18 year old Logan Mayland of Cedar Rapids.
Mayland is being charged with multiple counts, including Attempting to Elude, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Speeding. No one was injured.
