A police chase that began Friday morning in downtown Indy, speeding through the Hoosier hinterlands more than 25 miles, ended in Morgan County. This, thanks to some stop sticks and a laser focused police K-9 officer.
Here’s what happened…
Indianapolis Metro Police got the call about folks in a car pointing a shotgun at people near Washington and East Streets downtown. The suspects took off, jumping on the highway heading West toward the Indianapolis International Airport. They sped the typical route of Interstate-70 West, I-465, I-70 West some more–all, with police in hot pursuit. They made it out to Plainfield, and kept going West on State Road 67 to Centerton, Indiana rolling on a flat (thanks to those effective stop sticks).
Police nabbed the passengers—a woman and a man. However, the driver tried to bolt from the scene. That’s when the ‘pooch with a badge’ from the Indiana State Police grabbed him. (Give that dog a bone.) This investigation continues because that driver had a warrant. Police found shotgun shells found in the car and more. No word yet on the charges these suspects will face.
