WHITE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -- The Monon town marshal said an unlicensed driver was taken into custody Friday, after a pursuit that reached speeds around 100 miles per hour.
It started about a quarter past 7 p.m., eastbound on State Road 16. The chase ended after a crash roughly five minutes later. Investigators said the driver failed to navigate a turn.
He then allegedly ran away and jumped into Lake Shafer to try and escape. An officer in the pursuit swam after him and brought him back to shore.
Authorities said Anthony Rayburn faces two preliminary counts of resisting law enforcement, and one count of operating a vehicle without ever receiving a license. They are also awaiting toxicology results to determine whether drugs or alcohol were involved.
