Indiana State Police says 19-year-old Lauryn Conne of Evansville, Indiana, was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly fleeing from a trooper in late-August.

On Aug. 25, ISP Trooper Ross Rafferty was patrolling in the area of Kentucky Ave. and Washington Ave. when he saw the driver of a 2007 Chevrolet speeding.

ISP says that Trooper Rafferty tried to pull the woman over but that she wouldn't stop, continuing to drive until reaching stopped traffic near Highway 41.

Trooper Rafferty pulled alongside the vehicle and ordered the Conne to pull over. Police say she pulled over, but as soon as Trooper Rafferty exited his patrol car she took off again - disregarding all stop signs and traffic lights, before eventually making an escape due to traffic conditions.

An investigation into the incident by Trooper Rafferty continued and Conne was identified. ISP says Conne had an active felony warrant out of Henderson for a methamphetamine charge, and that the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office reviewed Rafferty’s investigation and issued a warrant for Conne's arrest.
