Claypool man arrested after police pursuit

A Claypool man is in custody after running from police.

It started when a Claypool deputy marshal attempted to pull over 31-year-old Kenyon Harris, who the Times Union reports is a habitual traffic violator.

Harris drove away from the scene of the traffic stop, hitting the wire of a utility pole on C.R. 900 S. The chase then continued as Harris drove to his Claypool apartment.

When he arrived, he tried to run inside, but was tased by officers.

Still, Harris got up and ran into his apartment. He exited through the back window, trying to get away, but was finally caught by Indiana conservation officers in a parking lot.

The Claypool Town Marshal tells the Times Union that Harris could face charges of driving while being an habitual traffic violator, fleeing and resisting law enforcement using a motor vehicle, reckless driving and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.

Before being booked into the Kosciusko County Jail, Harris was taken to the Kosciusko Community Hospital for medical clearance.

No officers were hurt in the incident.
