Police get help from citizen in chase

October 7, 2013

A man trying to escape police was disarmed by an Indianapolis resident after he broke into his home Monday. Police were called to Rodeway Inn in the 3500 block of Shadeland Avenue about 1 a.m. for a minor disturbance. When they arrived, the suspect in the disturbance took off in his vehicle, leading several officers on a 15-minute chase. The suspect eventually crashed into a fence near East 23rd and Wheeler streets. He fired at least one shot at police before entering a nearby home, where he was tackled and held by resident Michael Montgomery.
