(ABC 6 NEWS) – A Mason City man is behind bars after leading police, state patrol, and deputies on a chase Thursday night in Mason City.
Around 10:47 p.m. on Thursday a Cerro Gordo County Deputy attempted to stop a speeding vehicle at the intersection of 4th St. NE and N. Carolina Ave. in Mason City.
