(BEDFORD) - A Bedford man was arrested after he failed to stop for an Indiana State Police trooper Wednesday night.

According to ISP Sgt. Curt Durnil, the troopers attempted to stop a man on a motorcycle just after 9 p.m. on Ind. 37 near Fifth Street after the driver failed to signal a turn.

"The driver refused to stop and instead increased his speed," Durnil wrote in an email.

The man then turned onto State Road 158 and continued, at times driving west in the eastbound lanes.

The driver then turned onto Tripleton Pike Road with ISP Troopers Riley Nungester and Allen Deel in pursuit.

The driver turned onto Avoca Eureka Road and headed back to State Road 54/58. He then took, North Pike Road to Gasline Road all the way to Old Ind. 37 where he ran a red light at Ind. 37 and Old Ind. 37. at Johnny's Junxion.

"The suspect lost the seat of his motorcycle just west of the Crest Motel," Durnil says.

The driver then turned onto Trogden Lane from Old State Road 37 at Salt Creek Brewery.

"Unable to make the turn, he lost control of the bike and went down. He then ran on foot, prompting the release of ISP K-9 Drogos," Durnil wrote.

ISP Sgt. Greg Day, Trooper Allen Deel, and Trooper Robert Whyte chased him on foot for roughly 200 feet before he was taken into custody in a field.

Police arrested 44-year-old Terry Srygler, of 139 Green Hill Addition.

"Inside one of Mr. Srygler's pocket troopers located about 5 grams of methamphetamine and two pipes," Durnil wrote.

The ISP Meth team conducted an interview with Srygler, which led to the search of his home where troopers found marijuana.

Srygler is facing charges of resisting arrest, maintaining a common nuisance, reckless driving, criminal recklessness, possession of meth and possession of marijuana

Assisting ISP were Indiana Excise offer Dillon Irwin, Marshall Township Volunteer Fire Department and an IU Health Hospital ambulance crew.
