Tractor chase reaches speeds of whopping 18 mph

MERCER CO., Ohio ( WDTN) – A police chase suggests high speeds and a wild ride. Not this time.

Deputies spent a couple of hours Monday chasing down a farm tractor at speeds up to a whopping 18 mph through two states.

They started following Dustin Clouse in Decatur, Indiana while investigating a vandalism complaint. They didn’t stop him until he reached Burrsville Road near Route 707 in Mercer County.

Officers say the tractor damaged property along the way and he ran over stop sticks, but he just wouldn’t stop.

Our sister station, WANE TV in Fort Wayne, reports that he didn’t stop until the tractor did. It finally broke down. Officers had to tase him to get him into custody.

Clouse is now charged with fleeing and eluding. He is in the Mercer County Jail.
