Oelwein Man Arrested after Foot Chase in Arlington Area

A man has been arrested after a chase in Fayette County.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says they received a call on Monday morning that a wanted Oelwein man, Ryan Eickhoff, was seen at a gas station in Arlington.

Eickhoff had active arrest warrants out of Buchanan, Fayette and Chickasaw counties for Felony Forgery and Felony Eluding charges.

When deputies arrived, Eickhoff had already fled the area on foot. He was later spotted in an open field about two miles southwest of Arlington off E Avenue.

Authorities cornered Eickhoff within a wooded area. He was taken into custody without incident.

Further charges are pending.
