VANDERBURGH COUNTY, Ind. (WEHT) – A Henderson man was arrested on Friday after a pursuit on I-69 in Vanderburgh County.

The sheriff’s office says a deputy tried to stop a Chevy Malibu driven by Antwane Broomfield, 34, for driving 80 mph in a 70 mph zone. Deputies say Broomfield refused to stop and continued traveling southbound.

Indiana State Police and the Evansville Police Department joined in the pursuit. A trooper was able to deploy stopsticks, causing one of Broomfield’s tires to deflate and forcing him to stop.

Broomfield was taken into custody without incident. A female passenger was also detained briefly, but later released without charges.

Broomfield was arrested and booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail and charged with Resisting Law Enforcement (Level 6 Felony) and Operating a Vehicle as a Habitual Traffic Violator (Level 6 Felony). He currently has no bond pending a court appearance.
