ROCHESTER — On Thursday night, June 25, a vehicle pursuit led to arrest of Maurice R. Jackson, 29, South Bend.
Jackson was incarcerated in the Fulton County Jail to face criminal charges for resisting law enforcement with a vehicle, possession of marijuana, possession of a scheduled narcotic and dealing a scheduled narcotic.
At approximately 9 p.m. a Fulton County Sheriff Deputy initiated a traffic stop of a speeding motorist on SR 25 near CR 600S allegedly traveling 85 mph in a 55 mph zone. During the traffic stop, the driver, identified as Jackson, took off and fled the deputy. This led the deputy on a 10-minute pursuit into Cass County and the city of Logansport. The chase ended when Jackson struck a retaining wall at the curve on Michigan Avenue (SR 25) and Miami Avenue. The wall separates Michigan Avenue and the Eel River.
Jackson was the sole occupant in the vehicle. He was taken to Logansport Memorial Hospital and later taken to the Fulton County Jail.
