According to the Commercial News, A Rossville man was arrested Sunday after leading authorities on a police chase in the Potomac area.
According to Vermilion County Sheriff Captain Dennis Wood, deputies attempted to serve an arrest warrant around 6:30 p.m. Sunday for Jackie Winchester, 39, in an area northwest of Potomac. Winchester’s address is listed in the 300 block of Henderon Street, Westville.
“When they attempted to serve that arrest warrant, he fled in an automobile” Wood said.
Deputies pursued him from an area northwest of Potomac, and later apprehended Winchester ‘without incident’ in an area southeast of Potomac, according to Wood.
“We disabled the vehicle by deflating the tires with stop sticks,” Wood said. No related accidents or injuries occurred during the event, according to Wood.
Wood said he was charged with aggravated fleeing and eluding a police officer, obstructing justice and driving on a suspended license. According to court records, he was also issued citations for disobeying a traffic signal and speeding over 35 miles an hour above the legal limit on Sunday, Jan 3. His bond was set for $20,000.
He was last issued a citation for driving on a suspended license in October 2015.
