Man Chased by Police

For some reason an Evansville man took off when cops tried to pull him over just after midnight this morning. Now John Lynxwiler has a host of charges piled on directly related to resisting a stop. An officer tried to pull Lynxwiler over for a traffic violation on Franklin near 9th at 12:10. He refused and officers took chase to the area of St. Joe Avenue and Wyoming. Lynxwiler left his vehicle in a yard and ran on foot until a K-9 unit collected him a short time later. Charges include Resisting Law Enforcement, Disregarding a red light and stop sign, Speeding, Failure to signal a turn and Unsafe lane movement. Police say there was no indication he had been drinking and he didn't explain why he ran.
