Newburgh man after leading police on brief chase


A Newburgh man was arrested last week after leading police on a chase in Gibson County.

According to a release from the Indiana State Police, Cameron L. Shepherd, 19, of Newburgh, was arrested following an incident with troopers on Wednesday, Jan. 6. The release states that Shepherd was observed by a trooped traveling northbound on U.S. 41 in Gibson County at 107 miles per hour.

According to the release, the trooper immediately attempted to stop Shepherd by activating emergency lights and sirens, but Shepherd continued to drive at a high rate of speed turning east onto Coal Mine Road and then north onto County Road 10. However, the release states that Shepherd was later located with his vehicle parked partially in a driveway and front yard of a residence.

According to the release, Shepherd’s vehicle registration had expired and he didn’t have insurance for the vehicle. He was charged with resisting law enforcement with a vehicle, a Level 6 felony, and reckless driving, a Class A misdemeanor.
