A LaGrange County man was identified as the driver who led police on a high-speed chase on U.S. 131 Sunday.
Aaron Schrock, 23, of Shipshewana was booked into the LaGrange County jail on charges of resisting law enforcement with a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property and reckless driving.
During the pursuit, Schrock allegedly drove at several oncoming vehicles on State Road 9 and State Road 120, placing other motorists in danger, authorities said.
Officers with the LaGrange County Sheriff ’s Department executed a precision-immobilization technique on the vehicle, rendering it inoperable and terminating the pursuit that started around 2:30 p.m. in Constantine and continued into White Pigeon Township before entering LaGrange County.
A St. Joseph County sheriff ’s deputy was dragged about 40 yards by the vehicle after an initial attempt to stop it outside a trailer park at the south end of the village of Constantine.
Constantine Police Chief Mark Honeysett said his department will seek additional charges, including felonious assault.
