28-year-old Kyle Edward Vincent of Evansville, Indiana, was arrested on Wednesday after the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office says he fled from deputies for some time, even after running over a tire deflation device deployed by deputies.

The incident began on Wednesday just before 1:00 a.m., when Evansville Police Officers tried to stop a white 1996 Jaguar XJ6 for an equipment violation near the intersection of Main Street and Iowa Street.

According to VCSO, the driver, who was identified as Vincent, briefly stopped before speeding away from EPD officers in an attempt to evade arrest.

VCSO Deputies were nearby, and joined in on the pursuit after Vincent's vehicle nearly struck a deputy's vehicle.

The pursuit continued for several minutes before deputies successfully deployed a tire deflation device.

The sheriff's office says that even after striking the tire deflation device, Vincent continued to flee in his vehicle for nearly two miles before coming to a stop.

VCSO says that after stopping, Vincent barricaded himself in his vehicle, only to surrender after hearing release warning commands from a Sheriff’s Office K-9 handler.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
