Local Police Help Capture Fleeing Driver

(New Buffalo, MI) - A Chicago area man faces charges related to a high-speed chase through La Porte County over the weekend.


35-year-old Fontain Plummer was reported to be driving recklessly on Interstate 94 on Saturday morning. 


Police in Burns Harbor tried stopping the vehicle, but Plummer allegedly kept going. Then later, Michigan City Police and La Porte County Police joined the pursuit. Finally, one of the suspect’s tires was flattened with stop sticks, which slowed the driver traveling eastbound at 50 miles per hour.


Plummer traveled into Michigan, then veered off the highway at Exit 1 and wound up in a field outside New Buffalo, where he was taken into custody.


He was held in the Berrien County Jail until he was transferred to Porter County to face charges in that jurisdiction.
