ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- A 34-year-old man is facing multiple charges after leading Indiana State Police on two county pursuit on the Indiana Toll Road.

An Indiana State Police trooper spotted a vehicle traveling over 80 mph Tuesday evening around 9:30 p.m. at the 54 mile marker.

Jones also weaved in and out of traffic as he was pursued, police said.

The vehicle pursuit ended at the mile marker 77 exit ramp when Jones jumped out of his car and ran from officers, reports said.

Troopers chased Jones and took him into custody.

Police are still investigating what Jones was throwing out of the vehicle

Jones was charged with resisting law enforcement and two counts of reckless driving

Jones is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
