DEARBORN COUNTY, Ind. -- Two men were arrested Wednesday after attempting to hit Indiana state troopers with a vehicle and leading them on a chase through Dearborn County.
The events unfolded shortly after noon, when several law enforcement agencies were investigating a neighborhood in the northern part of the county, where several burglaries recently took place. Troopers spotted two people who they believed broke into a home on Walters Road.
From there, they followed the suspect vehicle on 5 Point Road and then tried to pull the car over.
The vehicle looked like it was slowing down, so one of the troopers got out of his car. The suspects sped up, and tried to strike the trooper as they drove away. The trooper fired several shots at the suspect vehicle.
The suspects led troopers on a chase that started on Lawrenceville Road, went across State Route 46, onto St. Peters Road in Franklin County and onto Blue Creek Road. The vehicle stopped on Sturwold Road and the suspects ran on foot through nearby woods.
The troopers soon caught up with the suspects and took both into custody. The identity of the two people arrested was withheld Wednesday afternoon.
The troopers were not injured during the incident. One suspect had a minor injury, but did not want medical treatment. Police were unsure if the injury was from a gunshot wound or running in the woods.
