Last night at approximately 7:30, Senior Trooper Finney was patrolling US 41 near CR 925 South when he observed a 2011 Toyota Scion traveling northbound at 107 mph.

Trooper Finney immediately activated his emergency lights and attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver continued north at a high rate of speed.

The driver turned east onto Coal Mine Road and then north on CR 10 East. Trooper Finney located the vehicle parked partially in a driveway and front yard of a residence.

The driver was ordered out of the vehicle and arrested without further incident.

Further investigation revealed the registration on the vehicle was expired and he didn’t have insurance for the vehicle.

Shepherd is currently being held on bond in the Gibson County Jail.
