GREENSBURG — Sheriff Allen said Cantine told police he ran because his license was suspended.
Cantine was arrested and booked into the Decatur County Jail Thursday afternoon on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle, fleeing law enforcement with a motor vehicle, criminal recklessness with a motor vehicle, speeding and reckless driving.
The incident also led police to place North Decatur Elementary School and North Decatur Junior/Senior High School on a temporary lockdown for safety reasons. Much of the chase took place in the vicinity of both of those schools on State Road 3.
“We didn’t want to take any chances,” Allen said following the incident. “We just wanted everyone to be safe, and everything worked out great. The main thing was that nobody got hurt.”
In addition to the DCSD and GPD, members of the Indiana State Police from both the Pendleton and Versailles posts and the Rush County Sheriff’s Department assisted in the capture of Cantine.
