From Local Sources
NEW ALBANY — Police arrested a New Albany man Friday night on multiple charges after a pursuit and crash.
The event began when the New Albany Police Department responded at 11 p.m. after a female caller reported a man in a car had pointed a gun at her. When officers arrived, they observed a black, 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass matching the description given by the caller. They attempted to stop the driver; however, the driver failed to stop, and a pursuit ensued on local city roads.
The pursuit was joined by Floyd County Sheriff’s Office deputies and troopers from the Indiana State Police Sellersburg Post.
When the driver attempted to enter I-64 eastbound at the Spring Street ramp, he lost control on the ramp due to the wet roadway. His Cutlass spun and collided with the guardrail.
The driver, later identified as George S. White, 32, New Albany, then put his car into reverse and backed into a Floyd County deputy’s car before officers took him into custody, according to state police.
During the arrest, officers reported locating a syringe in the vehicle. Officers did not find a weapon; however, the investigation is ongoing.
White was booked into the Floyd County Jail on preliminary Level 6 felony counts of resisting law enforcement with a vehicle and unlawful possession of a syringe, plus misdemeanor driving while suspended (prior) and reckless driving.
