    UFC lightweight Josh Neer spent the first hours of the new year in a jail cell, after he was arrested for a hit-and-run incident and high-speed chase early Thursday in Des Moines, Iowa.

    Neer, 25, faces charges of Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated, hit-and-run, eluding police and other traffic violations, according to Sgt. Jeff Phillips with the Des Moines Police Department. This was Neer’s second OWI offense. Eluding police is a felony charge.

    Neer allegedly struck two vehicles –- the second of which was a police car -- and then led authorities on a chase that reached speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. After attempting a PIT maneuver, police reportedly deployed spike strips in an attempt to bring the pursuit to an end. Neer was arrested after blowing a tire and later posted bail.

    Phillips was not immediately sure how much bail was set for, only that Neer had already been released from Polk County Jail.

    Neer (24-7-1) is currently scheduled to face Mac Danzig in a lightweight bout at UFC Fight Night 17 on Feb. 7 at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Fla.

    The Miletich Martial Arts fighter’s last appearance was a split decision loss to Nate Diaz at UFC Fight Night 15 in September 2008.

    Initial attempts to reach a representative for Neer were unsuccessful.
