Two Arrested In Police Pursuit

Last updated on Monday, February 28, 2011

(VALLONIA, IN) - A police pursuit early Saturday led to the arrest of two men in Jackson County.

The arrest of 33-year-old Charles M. Williams III and 54-year-old Robert D. Douglas began when officers attempted to stop a Dodge pickup driven by Williams.

Police say Williams attempted to evade him by heading to the Vallonia Bottoms on County Road 375 West.

Floodwaters from the East Fork of the White River made the road impassable, forcing Williams to take a farm lane.

The two men were eventually apprehended after water over the farm lane was too deep for their vehicle.

The two now face several charges.
