Slow-speed chase ends in arrest
SULLIVAN, Ind.- An Indiana man accused of stealing his son's farm tractor in Crawford County led authorities from three jurisdictions in the bi-state area on a slow-speed chase Friday.

Brian K. Boone, 53, Coalmont, Ind., is in the Sullivan County, Ind., Jail today after his arrest late Friday north of Sullivan

According to Crawford County Sheriff Todd Liston, Boone is accused of stealing a 1976 Case 1570 from his son, Brian C. Boone, south of Robinson. Liston's department was contacted about 8:20 p.m. and later received a tip that a farm tractor was heading over the Hutsonville bridge into Indiana at "a high rate of speed." Liston estimated the highest speed for the tractor at 15 mph.

Local authorities followed Boone and contacted the Sullivan County Sheriff's Department about the situation. The department and the Sullivan police joined the pursuit and attempted to stop the tractor with stop sticks. Boone, however, evaded police by driving off the road and cutting through fields.

The chase ended after about an hour when Boone drove through a corn field and crashed into a drainage ditch, damaging the tractor. Arrested by Sullivan deputies, he faces several charges including possessing a stolen vehicle and resisting arrest. He also faces at least one charge in Crawford County.

No injuries were reported.
