BRIDGEPORT MAN ARRESTED AFTER CHASE

A Lawrence County man is in custody in Knox County Indiana after a vehicle chase. 27 year old John Koonce of Bridgeport was spotted driving a stolen pickup truck on the Old Bruceville Road by police. That led to the truck being pursued onto Old Wheatland Road and then later onto several rural county roads near Vincennes. Koonce then stopped in a field near Thompson Road and fled on foot but was later captured about a quarter mile away. He has been preliminarily charged with Vehicle Theft, two counts of Resisting Law Enforcement, Reckless Driving, and Aggressive Driving. Koonce was booked into the Knox County Jail on $5000 bond.
