The pursuit ended on Tunnel Road near Lake Lemon, where Verhnies left the Chevy Cobalt at a dead end.

M/Trooper Durnil and Indiana Conservation Officer Kerry Griffith were able to provide a description of the driver - Verhnies - as he fled the scene.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Department, along with the Bloomington Police Department K9 was called to the scene to assist with the search of Verhnies.

Officers inventoried the vehicle and found an Verhnies' identification.

The investigation will be forwarded to the Monroe County Prosecutor's Office for their review.
