Police Report a High Speed Chase
It wasn't "The French Connection"
It didn't last very long, but it WAS a high-speed chase nonetheless -- and it ended in the arrest of a Vincennes man. Indiana State Police Trooper William Campbell gave chase when he observed an older-model pick-up traveling at a high-rate of speed on State Road 67. When Trooper Campbell attempted to stop the pick-up, the driver turned west on Bruce Road and accelerated, disregarding a stop sign, and kept going. The chase was short-lived, however, when the driver, 44-year old John Odell, swerved onto a service road to the Scepter Landfill, and was forced to stop by a gate blocking the road.
State Police say Odell was driving on a suspended license, and was arrested and taken to the K nox County Jail, and remains there on bond.
