Modern Life Is War Cop Chase
2013-09-09 by andcas | 54 Comments

Tyler Oleson, drummer for Marshalltown, Iowa hardcore band Modern Life Is War, was arrested Saturday night. The 31-year-old allegedly led police on a brief car chase that ended with him colliding into a squad car around the area.

Police say the incident escalated when the musician pulled up to a marked patrol car and flipped off an officer. When his gesture was ignored he then tried to run the officer off the road as they both continued to drive next to each other.

The officer maneuvered behind Oleson in an attempt to ram him but he slammed on the brakes and then took off to flee. A few minutes later Oleson once again slammed on his brakes and even tried to back up into another squad car.

Unsuccessful, Oleson went on foot and was later apprehended with physical force administered by a taser. He was booked on criminal mischief, aggravated assault, and an OWI first offense with additional charges pending upon investigation.
