A Holton man was arrested on numerous charges Nov. 19 after leading troopers on a vehicle pursuit in Ripley County, according to Sgt. Stephen Wheeles, Indiana State Police Versailles District public information officer.

The incident began about 9:30 p.m. when ISP Trooper Nicholas Albrecht attempted to stop a 2000 Buick LeSabre at High Street and Tanglewood Road in Versailles for a traffic violation. The vehicle, driven by Bradley Snapp, 32, fled from the trooper, going westbound from Versailles before traveling northbound toward Osgood.

At the intersection of County Road 325 North and County Road 525 West, Snapp lost control of the car. It left the road, struck a guardrail and overturned before landing in a creek. Albrecht, along with other officers, pulled Snapp from the vehicle. Suspected methamphetamine was located inside the car.

Snapp was transported to Decatur County Memorial Hospital, Greensburg, for treatment of minor injuries. He was then released into police custody and transported to the Ripley County Jail, Versailles, where he was incarcerated on charges of resisting law enforcement, possession of methamphetamine, operating while intoxicated and reckless driving.

Albrecht was assisted by other ISP Versailles Post troopers, Ripley County Sheriffs Office, Versailles and Osgood police departments, Osgood Fire Department and Ripley County EMS.
