      High speed chase suspect sentenced

      An Iron River man was sentenced after a pleading down to lesser charges related to a high speed chase.

      Donald Rymkos, 67, was originally charged with fleeing and eluding and driving on a suspended license, but pled down to a reduced charge of attempted fleeing and eluding fourth degree, which is a misdemeanor.

      On June 2, he was sentenced to 15 days in jail and 8 months probation. He received credit for 3 days served, and may make up the remaining 12 days by performing 24 days of community service.

      Rymkos was arrested on February 3 after a deputy with the Iron County Sheriff's Department observed what he believed to be a road rage incident. He tried to pull Rymkos over, but was ignored, leading to a chase on US-2.
