High-speed driver captured

February 18, 2011

An Indianapolis man faces several charges after leading police on a high-speed chase through the near-northeast side. An officer tried to pull over a speeding Jaguar near 16th Street and Sherman Drive at about 12:30 a.m. Friday, but the driver sped off. During the chase, the driver threw a gun out of the window, but kept driving, reaching 80 mph. Eventually, the car blew a tire, sending it crashing into a parked minivan. The driver tried to escape on foot, but was captured. The suspect was taken to Wishard hospital with injuries.
