According to the Sellersburg post, the chase started as a vehicle pursuit near the rest area at mile marker 23 in Clark County.

The vehicle chase on Interstate 65 went through the county before the Charles Jackson, 42, wrecked his car on Biggs Road and fled on foot through a field.

Police said during the chase Jackson drove the wrong way on the interstate during the chase, at speeds up to 85 miles per hour.

Police caught Jackson and arrested him near the Pilot truck stop in Memphis where a police dog found him hiding under a pile of scrap wood.
