A South Bend man will face several charges following his arrest after a pursuit in Fulton County.
The Fulton County Sheriff’s Department says a vehicle pursuit led to the arrest of Maurice R. Jackson, 29. Jackson was incarcerated in the Fulton County Jail to face criminal charges for resisting law enforcement with a vehicle, possession of marijuana, possession of a Scheduled narcotic and dealing a scheduled narcotic.
At approximately 9:00 pm, Thursday, a Fulton County Sheriff’s Deputy initiated a traffic stop of a speeding motorist on SR 25 near 600 South for allegedly traveling 85 mph in a posted 55 mph zone. While conducting the traffic stop the driver, Jackson, took off and fled. This led the deputy on an approximate 10 minute pursuit into Cass County and the City of Logansport. The chase ended when Jackson struck a retaining wall at the curve on Michigan Ave. (SR 25) and Miami Ave. The wall separates Michigan Ave. and the Eel River.
Jackson was taken to Logansport Memorial Hospital and observed overnight. He was cleared by the hospital on Friday and transported to the Fulton County Jail.
Assisting the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office was the Cass County Sheriff’s Office and the Logansport Police Department.
