VANDERBURGH CO., Ind. (WEHT) – Indiana State Police (ISP) made an arrest after a woman charged with DUI allegedly led officers on a pursuit.
On December 1, around 10:33 p.m., an ISP Trooper was patrolling US 41 near Bellemeade Avenue when he saw a car traveling south in the passing lane with expired registration. ISP says the Trooper activated his emergency red and blue lights and the driver stopped in the left turn lane at Washington Avenue.
