From IDS reports

An Indianapolis man was arrested after being pursued by police along Interstate 69 on Monday.

Ryan M. McGill, 27, has been arrested and charged through Monroe County with resisting law enforcement on foot after a 30 mile pursuit along I-69.

McGill was initially stopped at 8:32 a.m. for speeding at the I-69 82.5 mile mark by Master Trooper Scott Miller. However, when Miller approached the white 1999 Dodge mini-van, McGill accelerated and began driving north, according to an Indiana State Police press release.

At the 93.5 mile marker, a pistol was thrown from the vehicle. It was recovered by another trooper in the pursuit.

Around the 106 mile marker, a passenger began waving their hands and arms outside the window of the 
vehicle. They were let out when the vehicle abruptly stopped before continuing to drive north.

A tire deflation device was deployed at the 106.5 mile mark, which the vehicle drove over. It continued until the 112 mile marker when it pulled over into a steep ravine. McGill, the driver, fled on foot but was later located and placed into custody at 10:03 a.m. by the Bloomington Police Department, according to the press release.

A woman was also in the car and was detained.

Charges against McGill are pending through Daviess, Green and Monroe Counties.

He was also arrested on three outstanding warrants in Hendricks County, Indiana. He was placed in the Monroe County Jail before being transferred to the Hendricks County Jail, according to Hendricks County Jail officials.
