(Michigan City, IN) - Charges have been filed in connection with a recent police chase that ended with a crash in Michigan City.
Late Saturday afternoon, an officer spotted a vehicle reported stolen out of Chicago and tried pulling it over on Ohio Street on the city’s south side. This prompted the driver to flee, but it wasn’t long before he crashed near Franciscan Health hospital.
The driver took off running from there, before disappearing into a wooded area.
Another police officer with K-9 dog in tow arrived and announced he would release the animal if the suspect did not come out of hiding. Soon, the heavily tattooed driver emerged from the trees.
25-year-old Genesis Gavidia of Whiting was taken into custody, having also had warrants out for his arrest for probation violations on previous crimes of Battery and Theft.
