A Monday evening report of a road rage altercation on I-65 in Lebanon sent officers with the Boone County Sheriff’s Department to the scene. The suspect in the incident had reportedly pointed a firearm at the complainant, and then continued along the interstate. No shots were fired.
Officers caught up with the suspect’s vehicle and attempted to pull him over. The driver initially slowed down near the Whitestown exit of I-65, but then sped up and continued southbound. The pursuit led officers into Marion County and off the interstate onto a series of side streets.
The suspect’s car hit two “stop sticks” placed by police before officers were able to stop the vehicle near the intersection of Michigan and Meridian streets in downtown Indianapolis. According to police, the suspect was driving a stolen vehicle and was wanted on three warrants for previous crimes.
Thankfully, no one reported any injuries in the chase or the original road rage incident. For further details on the story, go here.
