28-year-old David Fruit was arrested a short time later. Police say he had a loaded syringe in his pocket that tested positive for meth.

He’s facing several charges, including possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest.


A Boonville woman is being held in the Vanderburgh County Jail after Sheriff’s deputies say she led them on a chase early Monday morning.
