Fishers Police Dept. officers arrested a couple for fleeing from a traffic stop in the early morning hours of July 29.
Danurell Blair, 38, of Kendleville, and Tionna Crouch, 33, of Indianapolis, were driving in the area of 96th Street and North by Northwest Boulevard before being stopped for a registration violation shortly after 1 a.m. July 29.
The officer inciting the traffic stop smelled marijuana as he approached the car. The driver refused to provide identification and, when instructed to exit the vehicle, refused and sped away.
Officers pursued Blair and Crouch before losing sight of them, but Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Dept. officers located their vehicle and the pursuit continued onto I-69.
The vehicle pursuit came to an end near the 214-mile marker after a tire deflation device disabled Blair and Crouch’s car. Blair attempted to flee on foot, but he was apprehended by an IMPD K-9 unit, requiring treatment for a minor bite wound before the pair was transported to the Hamilton County Jail.
