Man Bragged to Officer about Hitting 170 MPH During Chase

An Indiana man allegedly bragged to an officer about how fast he was driving after he reportedly forced several police agencies to chase him as he sped through traffic.

On the afternoon of March 23, a 20-year-old man from Fishers was driving a Mustang through Daleville. He was allegedly going much faster than the 55 MPH posted speed limit and caught the attention of an on-duty officer from the Daleville Police Department. The officer reported that the man was driving close to 85 MPH when he began to chase after him.

It was reported that when the driver noticed he was being pursued by the officer, he sped up instead of pulling over. The officer reported that at times the vehicle was clocked at over 100 MPH. He also alleged that the driver was operating the Mustang in an unsafe manner, and nearly caused several accidents on the road. He reportedly drove into oncoming traffic while allegedly fleeing.

In an attempt to stop the vehicle, a spike strip was implemented, but it did not work, and additional law enforcement agencies joined in the chase. The man was reportedly forced to halt when he smashed into a curb, which disabled the vehicle from continuing.

Madison County Sheriff’s deputies were at the scene, and one of them used a taser on the driver and held him on the ground. According to reports, while the man was talking to one of the officers, he began to boast about how he drove 170 MPH during parts of the chase.

He was taken into custody and booked on preliminary charges of criminal recklessness, resisting law enforcement, and criminal mischief. After posting bond he was released from the detention center.
