Police chase runs from Greenwood to Franklin

Follow Daily Journal:

A motorist led officers on a 14-mile pursuit early Monday before being arrested, police said.

Charles Albert Jones, 45, of Indianapolis, was arrested by Greenwood police on charges of fleeing with a vehicle and driving as a habitual traffic violator as well as four Hamilton County warrants.

A Greenwood officer tried to stop a vehicle at U.S. 31 and Tracy Road after seeing the driver changing lanes without using a turn signal, according to a police report.

The vehicle pulled into a gas station parking lot but didn’t stop and headed back out on U.S. 31 toward Greenwood.

The vehicle headed north toward Apryl Drive but crossed over the median to avoid spike strips set up by police and instead headed south. Jones’ vehicle hit two different sets of spike strips set up by police in Franklin, causing the tires to go flat, according to the report.

The vehicle stopped near a motel about a mile south of Franklin, and the driver, later identified as Jones, got out of the car and ran into a cornfield, where police caught him, the report said.

Jones, 40 S. Alabama St., was taken to the Johnson County jail, where he was being held without bond.
