TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) — A man is behind bars after leading police on a chase across three counties Wednesday.

Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Terry Ruley said it started around 1:50 a.m. when a deputy tried to pull over a vehicle in the 2700 block of Schuyler Avenue.

The vehicle, driven by Joshua Coleman, did not stop and merged onto the State Road 25 ramp onto Interstate 65 South.

Ruley said the vehicle reached speeds of 90 to 100 miles per hour while on the interstate.

Indiana State Police placed stop sticks south of State Road 38, and Coleman swerved and missed them.

The chase entered Clinton County, and deputies placed stop sticks at several locations. The 39-year-old avoided those too.

Coleman pulled over on stretch of I-65 in Boone County, just north of Lebanon, and stopped.

Ruley said nothing illegal was found on Coleman or in his vehicle.

He reportedly told deputies he was "scared".

Coleman was arrested and taken to the Tippecanoe County Jail.

He faces a felony charge of resisting with a vehicle and another charge of being a habitual traffic violator for life.
