ALBION, Ind. - Authorities thanked the public for helping to find the man who tried to run over a state trooper in northeastern Indiana.
Anthony Michael McClellan was taken into custody just before 9 p.m. Tuesday after an almost five-hour search, State Police Sgt. Ron Galaviz said.
Galaviz says the trooper began following McClellan near Big Lake in Noble County, about 20 miles northwest of Fort Wayne. He says the suspect had driven onto a dead-end street and the trooper had exited his car when the suspect turned his car around and tried to run over the trooper, who fired on the man. The trooper wasn't hit and police don't believe the man was struck by gunfire.
Galaviz says a church day care in the area was locked down for two hours.
McClellan was taken to the Noble County Jail on unrelated charges.
