West Lafayette man arrested after high-speed chase

Times staff - news@ftimes.com

A West Lafayette man is facing a long list of charges after sending local law enforcement on a high-speed chase that ended with a crash on Ind. 26 in Clinton County.

According to a release from the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office, deputies attempted to stop a vehicle traveling eastbound at a high rate of speed on Ind. 26 near Co. Road 850 W. at approximately 12:34 a.m. on Nov. 4. The vehicle failed to stop for officers and continued at a high rate of speed eastbound on Ind. 26. The vehicle was traveling at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. As the vehicle approached Sedalia, the driver lost control of the vehicle and left the roadway, rolling at least one time. The driver crawled from the crashed vehicle and was taken by EMS to a Lafayette hospital, where he was treated and released a short time later. Inside the vehicle, officers located syringes, paraphernalia and a substance that presumptively tested positive for methamphetamine.

Officer Blackwell handled the arrest. Sergeant Mitchell handled the crash. Clinton County EMS, Frankfort Police Department, Carroll County Sheriff’s Office and Flora Police Department all assisted with this incident.

Floyd Treece, 39, of West Lafayette, was arrested on initial charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of a syringe, possession of paraphernalia, operating while intoxicated, operating without ever receiving a license, and warrants for violation of probation, and possession of meth and burglary.

Formal Charges are pending from the Clinton County Prosecutor’s Office.
