A Council Bluffs man who prosecutors say led police on the fastest chase ever on a public highway in Iowa was convicted on charges of eluding an officer.

A Pottawattamie County jury convicted James Foldenauer on Wednesday.

The 39-year-old Foldenauer was charged with leading officers on a motorcycle chase that reached 188 mph on Interstate 29 in August
2009.

Assistant County Attorney Tom Nelson says the high-speed chase
is believed to be the fastest on a public highway in the state.

He says an Iowa State Patrol airplane, several state troopers, and Omaha police tracked and eventually caught Foldenauer.
