Driver charged for allegedly leading police on high speed chase
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- A man has been charged after allegedly leading police on a high speed pursuit, according to court records.
On November 8, Pokagon Tribal officers spotted a vehicle that matched the description as the vehicle involved in a theft and conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle, reports said.
One of the officers approached the vehicle and spoke with the driver, later identified as Quaypaii Carr.
While speaking with the officer, Carr put his vehicle in drive and sped away, reports said.
The officers got into their vehicle and began pursuing Carr’s vehicle.
During the pursuit, Carr traveled between 84 and 90 mph and failed to stop at 13 stop signs or stoplights, police said.
Carr’s vehicle crashed in an alley near Linden and Olive streets and Carr then ran from the scene of the crash, police said.
Carr was eventually apprehended and taken into custody on charges of resisting law enforcement and resisting law enforcement using a vehicle.
In court Wednesday, bond for Carr was set at $2,000.
UPDATE: In April 2022, Carr pleaded guilty to resisting law enforcement using a vehicle. His resisting law enforcement charge was dismissed. Carr was sentenced to 18 months in county jail with 18 months suspended. He was also sentenced to 18 months of probation.
