The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office says 48-year-old Christopher B. Hall was arrested on Wednesday after fleeing a deputy at a high rate of speed on a stolen motorcycle.

VCSO says one of its deputies saw Hall riding the motorcycle on N. Green River Road just after midnight on Wednesday.

The sheriff's deputy attempted a traffic stop on Hall, at which point the sheriff's office says Hall stopped and had his female passenger get off the motorcycle before fleeing at a high rate of speed.

According to VCSO, Hall crashed after striking a curb during a turn on Millersburg Road, laying the motorcycle down. They say Hall rolled about ten feet from the bike and landed in a grassy area.

A deputy checked on Hall, who had sustained a laceration to the back of his head as well as road rash to the right side of his body.

VCSO says a registration check revealed the motorcycle to be stolen and that a records search revealed that Hall had a suspended driver’s license and was wanted on felony charges in both Gibson County and Warrick County.

The sheriff's office says a search of Hall's belongings revealed nearly three grams of meth and a small amount of fentanyl.

Hall was taken to a local hospital by ambulance. Upon his release from the hospital, Hall was arrested and booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail.
