MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind. -- A motorcyclist led multiple police agencies on a pursuit throughout Marshall County Monday afternoon, according to the Marshall County Sheriff's Department.
Around 4:30 p.m., an Indiana State Police trooper attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a motorcycle for speeding near SR 17 and SR 110 near Culver, deputies said.
