WASHINGTON — Trooper Jarrod Lents stopped a 2001 Daewoo on CR 150S at SR 57 at approximately 10:20 p.m. Friday night for making several unsafe lane movements.

The driver was identified as Kaleb Wilson, 20, of Washington. While Lents was in his patrol car writing a citation, Wilson exited his vehicle and fled on foot.

Lents chased Wilson for approximately half a mile through muddy fields and a wooded area before finally catching him. Wilson continued to resist, but was taken into custody.

Further investigation revealed he was under the influence of marijuana. Wilson was arrested and charged with resisting law enforcement, operating a vehicle while intoxicated/marijuana and auto theft. He was held in the Daviess County Security Center on a $6,500 bond.
