(BLOOMINGTON) – A Tennessee couple was arrested Wednesday just before 5:30 p.m. after an Indiana State Trooper observed a silver passenger car traveling at a high rate of speed at the 109 mile marker, northbound on Interstate 69, about 5 miles south of Bloomington.
Trooper Allen Deel was able to clock the vehicle’s speed at 100 miles per hour.
As Trooper Deel attempted to initiate a traffic stop, the silver car fled, driving erratically and reaching speeds of over 140 miles per hour. The vehicle began dangerously weaving and passing in the median and on the roadway shoulders prior to exiting the interstate on 3rd Street.
At that time, Trooper Deel terminated the pursuit.
A short time later, Trooper Todd Durnil came into contact with the silver car north of Bloomington and the driver fled again, this time southbound on North Griffith Access Road. The vehicle ultimately crashed through a fence at a private residence and then through a field, crashing through a cattle gate and finally crashing through the I-69 boundary fence before becoming stuck in the mud.
The driver was identified as 24-year-old Aubrey E. Davis, 24 of Clarksville, TN. Once immobile, Davis exited the vehicle and surrendered. His passenger, 20-year-old Sydney M. Allen, also of Clarksville, TN exited the vehicle without further incident as well.
Troopers found a clear plastic bag of white powder, a large sum of money, a pill bottle containing 5 different Schedule II pills, and a digital scale. Hand-rolled cigars containing marijuana were also discovered along with additional Schedule II pills.
Both Davis and Allen were lodged at the Monroe County Jail.
Davis is facing charges of possession of cocaine, resisting arrest by fleeing in a vehicle, five counts of possession of Schedule II drug, possession of marijuana with a prior conviction and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
Allen is facing charges of possession of Schedule II drug and possession of marijuana.
