We’re told the sheriff’s office became involved in the chase after Vincent’s vehicle nearly struck a deputy’s vehicle. Stop sticks were deployed, but Vincent kept driving for nearly two miles before stopping.

Deputies say Vincent initially would not get out of the vehicle, but finally surrendered after hearing release warning commands from a Sheriff’s Office K-9 handler.

Vincent was taken to the Vanderburgh County Detention Center. He faces several charges including resisting law enforcement, reckless driving, and a strong robbery warrant out of Posey County.
