Habitual traffic offender flees from Columbus police, arrest made

BARTHOLOMEW CO. – A driver is facing felony charges after fleeing from a Bartholomew County deputy onto Interstate 65 early Friday morning.

According to the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department, a deputy tried to pull over a vehicle for a traffic stop at River Road and East County Road 550 North at about 12:55 a.m. But the driver took off fleeing through northern Bartholomew County before getting on the interstate.

Franklin Police officers and Johnson County deputies used a device to deflate the vehicle’s tires near the Franklin exit, but the driver continued traveling north. A Bargersville Police caught up to the vehicle and used a maneuver to force the driver’s car to spin and stop.
