Man leads police across four counties in chase

LAWRENCE, Ind. - A man led Lawrence police on a chase through four counties Sunday before losing control of his vehicle near Pendleton.

Police received a call just before noon Sunday alleging that a man was fondling himself and taking pictures in the Lawrence Wal-Mart parking lot.

When officers arrived on scene, the suspect, later identified as Nashon Mason, 30, of Indianapolis, sped away in his vehicle.

Mason then led police on a chase across Marion, Hancock, Hamilton and Madison Counties – eventually ending in Pendleton near State Road 9 and County Road 900 when he lost control of his vehicle.

No one was injured in the pursuit.

Mason was preliminarily charged with resisting law enforcement. More charges were pending, according to police.
