Columbus man accused in drunken chase

BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – A Columbus man was arrested late Wednesday night after police say he led officers on a chase while possibly driving drunk.

It started around 10:15 p.m. A deputy was responding to a call about a suspicious vehicle in a field near County Road 550 South.

When the deputies arrived on scene, officials say the suspect vehicle drove head on at their vehicles before swerving in between their cars. That was when, officials say, the pursuit began.

Police say the suspect, identified as 57-year-old Greg Hill, drove at a high rate of speed to try and elude deputies. He eventually stopped in a driveway near East 500 South where he was taken into custody.

Officials say while being placed under arrest, police noticed signs that Hill may be intoxicated. He was placed under arrest on preliminary charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and resisting law enforcement with a vehicle. Hill was also cited for reckless driving and booked into the Bartholomew County Jail.
