Pursuit ends with Michigan man's arrest

A White Pigeon, Mich. man was arrested Tuesday morning after a high-speed pursuit that began in LaGrange County Monday night.

According to LaGrange County police, an officer attempted to pull over a 1994 Toyota Carolla on 750 North, east of 1150 West at 9:20 p.m. Monday. The vehicle initially stopped but when the officer got out of his patrol car the vehicle fled the scene.

The vehicle led police on a high speed pursuit into St. Joseph County, Michigan and back into LaGrange County before the vehicle returned to Michigan and stopped in White Pigeon Church of Christ on Kalamazoo Road. Police identified the driver as Joseph J. Chandler, of 69698 S. River Road, White Pigeon, Mich. who surrendered to police at that time.
