The Jennings County Sheriff’s Office arrested Michael Hubbard (age 34) of North Vernon after Hubbard attempted to flee, on a motorcycle, from police. The pursuit started when Hubbard failed to stop at a stop sign and Chief Deputy David Turner, Sheriff Kenny Freeman and Reserve Deputy Eric Pettit attempted to conduct a traffic stop on Hubbard. The deputies were utilizing the new UTV the Sheriff’s Office had just put into service approximately an hour prior.

Hubbard is currently being held in the Jennings County Jail with a $1055.00 dollar bond on the following charges:

1)Resisting Law Enforcement with a vehicle - Level 6 felony
