GIBSON CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Indiana State Police say a man from Newburgh was arrested Wednesday night after a short but high-speed chase in Gibson County.

Around 7:30 p.m., troopers patrolling on US 41 near CR 925 South saw a car traveling northbound at nearly 110 mph.

Troopers say they tried to pull the driver over, but he continued driving north at a high rate of speed.

The driver then turned east onto Coal Mine Road and then north on CR 10 East.

Authorities say they found the car parked partially in a driveway and in the front yard of a home.

The driver, 19-year-old Cameron Shepherd, was ordered out of the car and was arrested without further incident.

Indiana State Police discovered the registration on the vehicle was expired and Shepherd didn’t have insurance.

He is currently being held on bond in the Gibson County Jail.

Shepherd is being charged with reckless driving and resisting law enforcement.
