A driver was arrested after fleeing police through Marshall and St. Joseph counties. The chase involved officers from five different agencies.

A Marshall County Police officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on Timothy Applegate for an outstanding warrant.

Police said Applegate had an outstanding felony warrant from St. Joseph County, a misdemeanor warrant out of Marshall County and was driving on a suspended license.

He has a $10,000 cash bond.

The following agencies assisted Marshall County Police: Walkerton Police, Lakeville Police, St. Joseph County Police and Indiana State Police.
