Man captured after high-speed chase

April 17, 2012

A man arrested Monday afternoon after a high-speed chase in Boone County gave officers an unusual excuse for trying to elude capture. The driver, 42-year-old Moishe D. Watkins, told Indiana State Police he didn't stop when an officer tried to pull him over for reckless driving because he was late for a court appearance in Howard County. The chase involved speeds up to 150 mph before Watkins crashed into the back of another vehicle, ending the chase. No one was injured in the crash.
