LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A Lafayette man is facing several charges after a police pursuit early Monday morning. According to Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office, officers attempted to stop Brian Bradley in the 600 block of Haggerty lane just before 3 a.m.

Deputies said the 63-year-old drove off leading deputies on a high-speed chase. Deputies said they attempted to make contact with Bradley again when a passenger exited his vehicle and took off running.

The driver drove away a second time before White County deputies deployed stop sticks near the 201 mile-marker on I-65. He continued on flat tires until he lost control and struck the median barrier.

Bradley faces preliminary charges including reckless driving and operating while intoxicated. Bradley was flown to a nearby hospital for treatment following the crash. Deputies said his injuries are non-life threatening.
