David Gurley dodged the spiked strips officers set out to stop his speeding Buick — but three sheriff’s cars didn’t Monday morning and flayed their tires.
Even so, after fleeing police for almost an hour, Gurley wasn’t in the clear. The chase began, police said, after a deputy noticed the license plates on Gurley’s car didn’t match the vehicle.
Then ahead of Gurley on I-70 waited a truckers’ rolling roadblock, police reports said. In an effort to swerve around the big rigs, Gurley ended up mired in a Clark County field, where he was arrested at 5:30 a.m.
Gurley, 33, 3000 block of Forest Avenue, was brought back to Indianapolis after the chase. He is being held on $30,000 bail at the arrestee processing center, facing preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement, operating a vehicle with a suspended license and as a habitual offender, criminal recklessness, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.
