STEUBEN COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) — A Steuben County man was arrested early Tuesday morning after leading police on a motorcycle chase and a three-hour search near the intersection of Ozark Street and West Street in Pleasant Lake, Indiana.
A police officer attempted to stop 23-year-old Austin Ray German of Hudson, Indiana, after noticing the motorcycle did not have any lights on.
German sped away, and a short chase began before he ran off the road near 2700 W. 500 S., which led to the manhunt.
Police eventually found German using a drone from the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office, and their K-9 Department and Angola Police’s K-9 Department also provided assistance.
German was charged with one count of resisting law enforcement with a vehicle and was also found to have an existing warrant for violating probation.
The incident is still under investigation, and additional charges may be sought.
