Tuesday, at approximately 9:30 pm, a Holton, Indiana man was arrested on numerous charges after leading troopers on a vehicle pursuit in Ripley County.

The incident began when Trooper Nicholas Albrecht attempted to stop a 2000 Buick LeSabre at High Street and Tanglewood Road in Versailles, Indiana for a traffic violation.  The vehicle, being driven by Bradley R.
