Franklin man arrested after police pursuit

After a pursuit with police through a Franklin neighborhood, a man ended up in jail on felony charges.

Doron Madison, 20, 2111 Charles Drive, Franklin, was arrested on charges of resisting law enforcement with a vehicle causing serious injury, possession of a controlled substance and possession of a syringe.

On Thursday night, police said Madison was driving west on Adams Street in Franklin with a man in the passenger seat. He turned on Richey Street, but did not use a turn signal. A sheriff’s deputy stopped the vehicle, but then it sped off. The deputy and other officers followed, with speeds reaching 50 mph, according to the report from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office.

The chase continued onto Cincinnati Street, where the vehicle tried to make a left turn onto Yandes Street. The car skid and drifted through the intersection of Yandes and Pratt streets, where there were people nearby, and then struck a tree, the report said.

Madison got out of the car and tried to run away, but fell down twice, the report said. The deputy who arrested him found he had a plastic bag with three syringes, and another syringe was found in the car, the report said.

A passenger in the car said he couldn’t feel his legs and was transported to IU Health Methodist Hospital, where he was treated and released.

Madison is being held in the Johnson County jail on $5,700 bond.
