Iowan in custody wiggles out of handcuffs, steals trooper's squad car

(Madison County, IA) -- A Dallas Center man's facing a long list of charges after the Iowa State Patrol says he wiggled out of hand-cuffs and stole a trooper's squad car.

The State Patrol says a trooper was helping the driver of a stalled car on I-80 Tuesday afternoon on I-80 near Dexter, when a man walked up. The trooper arrested the man, but he managed to get out of the handcuffs, and got behind the wheel of the squad car and took off.

Troopers and Sheriff's deputies arrested 31-year-old Brandon Doerring him in a rural area southeast of Badger Creek State Park in Madison County, in the 1400 block of Tree Line Ct.

Doerring has been booked into the Dallas County Jail. He's facing multiple drug and traffic charges, as well as assault on a peace officer. Police say he bit an Iowa D-O-T motor vehicle enforcement officer.
