CLARKSVILLE, Ind. -- A Louisville man is in custody in Clark County following a high-speed pursuit on Interstate 65.
Thomas L. Kessinger, 66, is being held in the Michael L. Becher Adult Corrections Complex after he allegedly fled from Louisville Metro Police Department officers just before 1 p.m. on Monday.
Indiana State Police Sgt. Jerry Goodin said Kessinger drove northbound on Interstate 65, eventually taking a U-turn across the median near Memphis. The suspect continued southbound and was stopped north of mile marker 9 after police deployed stop sticks.
Clark County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Jeremy Mull described it as a “high-speed pursuit.” He said officers discovered marijuana in the vehicle after making the stop. Maj. Donnie Bowyer with the Clark County Sheriff’s Department said Kessinger is being held on $100,000 bond out of Clark County Superior Court No. 2. According to police scanner traffic, LMPD’s Crimes Against Children Unit attempted to stop Kessinger for questioning when he fled.
Jeffersonville Police Department and Indiana State Police officers were involved in the pursuit after it entered Indiana. At one point, according to scanner traffic, there were at least seven trooper vehicles following the suspect.
