June 18, 2014

CHURUBUSCO — A high-speed chase led police from Noble County, through Churubusco and into Allen County early Wednesday morning.

Churubusco Police Marshal Mike Engle said one of his officers assisted police in slowing down the chase, which topped speeds of 100 miles per hour.

According to deputies from the Noble County Sheriff’s Department, dispatchers received a call from a woman who said her husband was causing a disturbance at Chain O’ Lakes State Park by driving around at 1 a.m.

The caller also told police she believed her husband was intoxicated.
Police attempted to initiate a traffic stop with the man at the entrance of the park, but he took off, leading deputies on a 25-mile pursuit.

The man drove south on U.S. 33, through Churubusco and reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour.

A Churubusco Police Officer attempted to put a halt to the pursuit by laying down stop sticks, similar to spike strips, on U.S. 33 near the north park entrance.
