INDIANAPOLIS - A chase that started in Putnam County on Interstate 70 ended in a crash at the Hard Rock Cafe on Meridian Street in downtown Indy.
Indiana State Police were pursuing the vehicle Thursday morning, when the chase moved east into the city, eventually ending in a crash at Maryland and Meridian streets. The chase started about 8:50 a.m. and reached speeds of up to 120 mph.
Police used stop-sticks near Maryland and Meridian streets to end the chase. Just after 9 a.m., the driver crashed into a woman on a bicycle, another car, and a utility pole before coming to a full stop.
After crashing, the suspect jumped out of the car and ran into a nearby parking garage. When police caught up with him, he began spitting on the officers, RTV6's Julie Pursley reported.
"This man had no regard for anyone's safety out there and we knew as a police agency, for everyone's safety, he had to be stopped and taken in," ISP Sgt. Rich Myers said.
Police said the car involved in the chase may have been stolen from Illinois.
Police later identified the suspect as 23-year-old Torvon E. Davis, of Indianapolis.
Davis was taken to the Putnam County Jail. Prosecutors will review the case to determine the exact charges he will face.
A female bicyclist involved in the crash was released from the hospital later Thursday evening.
Jannelle Nordlund, 25, went to the hospital with pain in her foot, officials said.
Police said medics looked at the driver of the other car on the scene, but he did not go to the hospital.
