A check of Glenn showed he had multiple felony warrants from Kentucky of evading police, according to a news release from Sgt. Stephen Wheeles, public information officer for the Versailles Post.
Garrett asked Glenn to get out of his 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche, but Glenn fled the scene, leading police on a chase that spanned three counties. Troopers Gary Thalls and Robert Hutson joined Garrett in the pursuit.
Police laid a tire deflation device in Scott County, where Glenn struck it but continued even after the tires were deflated.
Glenn made it to the 16-mile-marker in Clark County when he lost control of the vehicle, struck a guardrail and overturned before coming to a stop. He was then arrested and taken to Scott Memorial Health in Scottsburg for a medical evaluation and later was released.
Troopers from the Versailles Post were assisted by troopers from the Sellersburg Post and officers from the Scott County Sheriff’s Department, Clark County Sheriff’s Department and Scottsburg Police Department. Scott County EMS also assisted.
Police credited dispatchers with the Indiana State Police Region 4, Scott County Sheriff’s Department and Clark County Sheriff’s Department for “excellent coordination” to ensure the incident ended safely, according to the news release.
Glenn was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at 2:34 p.m. without bond. His initial court appearance has not been scheduled.
Glenn also is being held on the warrant from Louisville, Kentucky.
A Level 6 felony carries a sentence between six months and two and a half years if convicted.
