A farmer helped an Indiana State Police trooper make an arrest last week.
A trooper spotted an erratic driver in Kosciusko County and a chase ensued. The suspect was able to get away but the trooper later saw the suspect’s vehicle parked in a driveway at 4985 N. 920 W. in Etna Green. The officer exited his car and found the suspect running through a farm field. The trooper returned to his car and paralleled the man on 400 North as the man began to run faster through the field.
At the time this was happening, a farmer who was plowing the field the suspect was running through called police. The dispatchers alerted the officer that the farmer could assist him in the pursuit. The farmer picked up the officer and the farmer drove him through the field where the man surrendered.
The suspect, Jacob P. Miller, 41 of Plymouth, allegedly admitted that he got scared when he saw the police car because he was on probation and had a suspended driver’s license. Miller was arrested on preliminary charges of Resisting Law Enforcement and Driving While Suspended.
