That's WAY too high. That is why it is going so crazy. Crash cooling it now would shock the yeast and that wouldn't be too good either.
You want to keep it around 68 degrees for the whole brew. If you swing the temps too much though, you'll shock the yeast and they might not be too happy about what you've done to them.
