Jennings motorcycle chase ends after off-road flight

Jennings County deputies say that a man tried to flee through woods on his motorcycle before eventually getting stopped by a ravine.

The incident started at about 2 p.m. on Friday afternoon while deputies were using their new off-road vehicle, and noticed a driver run through a stop sign .  Instead of stopping for officers, the driver took off, eventually going off-road before reaching a creek he couldn’t cross. The driver, identified as 34-year-old Michael Hubbard of North Vernon then tried to run away, before being taken into custody a short distance later.

He was arrested on preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement with a vehicle, reckless driving, operating a vehicle while intoxicated and driving while suspended.
