(HYMERA) - A Friday morning pursuit landed a Terre Haute man behind bars.

The pursuit began at 12:40 a.m. after an Indiana State Trooper attempted to stop a red 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe for a stop sign violation in the town of Hymera.

The incident lasted nearly 45 minutes with initial speeds reaching near 80 miles per hour.

Trooper Brad Miller activated his emergency lighting, the driver, later identified as 29-year-old Shane Corey, of Terre Haute, fled westbound on State Road 48 and then northbound on US 41.

The chase continued into Vigo County with Vigo County sheriff's deputies deploying stop sticks at Pimento Circle, which the driver struck and deflated the two front tires.

After striking the stop sticks on U.S. 41 at Pimento Circle, the two front tires were deflated causing the vehicle to travel on the rims with speeds averaging between 40 and 50 miles for the remainder of the chase.

Corey continued northbound through the City of Terre Haute with officers from various agencies blocking intersections for safety.

Once through the city of Terre Haute and northern Vigo County, the chase continued into Parke County with Parke County sheriff's deputies deploying stop sticks on U.S. 41 at County Road 900 South.

Corey again struck the stop sticks damaging a rear tire and continued on driving on the rims of the vehicle.

He then turned west onto State Road 163 and as he was crossing the Wabash River Bridge, Clinton City police officers deployed another set of stop sticks which Corey struck and deflated the remaining tires.

The chase ended when Corey drove into a private yard at the intersection of 7th and Front streets in Clinton.

Corey was arrested on felony charges of resisting law enforcement with a vehicle and being a habitual traffic violator and a misdemeanor charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated-refusal and taken to the Sullivan County Jail.

Police say vehicular traffic was very light during the chase and there were no injuries of any kind related to this event.

The arresting officer was ISP Trooper Brad Miller. Assisting were ISP Troopers David Petrowski and Rondell Shelton, Sullivan Police officers, Sullivan County Sheriff Department deputies, Vigo County Sheriff Department deputies, Terre Haute Police officers, West Terre Haute Police officers, Indiana State University Police officers, Parke County Sheriff Department deputies, Clinton Police officers, and Vermillion County Sheriff Department deputies.
