A Grove man was arrested on several charges Friday, January 3rd, after attempting to elude an officer who tried to pull him over for speeding, according to a report by the Grove Police Department.

Robert Lang Betterton, 46, was taken into custody Friday night after leading an officer on a high speed chase, the report said.

Officer Daniel Amendolara clocked Betterton at 57 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour zone at Highway 59 and 83rd Street, according to the report.

When Amendolara turned around, however, Betterton turned east on 98th Street and accelerated to a high rate of speed, the report said.

Amendolara pursued the vehicle until it pulled into a yard and shut its lights off, the report said.

He then saw Betterton jump out of the car and run behind a white utility trailer.

Amendolara apprehended Betterton without further incident, the report said.

Betterton faces possible charges of driving under suspension, driving under intoxication, and eluding an officer. He was issued a warning for speeding as well.
