A Golden, Colorado man remains in Posey County Jail on bond after an early morning police pursuit involving Indiana State Police.

ISP says that 51-year-old William Clanton faces Resisting Law Enforcement and Reckless Driving charges.

Around 7:20 am Tuesday morning, Clanton was spotted traveling through a yard and a ditch north of Mt. Vernon in Posey County.

ISP says Clanton started to drive south on State Road 69 before making an unsafe U-turn.

ISP tried to pull the car over but says Clanton started driving north on S.R. 69, reaching speeds over 90 MPH.

That's when ISP deployed stop sticks near S.R. 165, which disabled two of Clanton's tires. Clanton lost control of the car and overturned just north of High School Road.

Clanton was taken to Deaconess Midtown in Evansville for injuries. He was treated and then released into custody.

The Posey County Sheriff's Office helped ISP in making the arrest.
