A Newburgh teen was arrested on Wednesday night after leading an Indiana State Police Trooper on a brief, but high-speed chase in Gibson County.

According to ISP, 19-year-old Cameron L. Shepherd was clocked at 107 MPH while driving a 2011 Toyota Scion on Highway 41 in Gibson County Wednesday.

ISP Trooper Finney immediately activated his emergency lights and attempted to perform a traffic stop, but instead of stopping, ISP says Shepherd continued to travel north at a high rate of speed.

The trooper was able to locate Shepherd's vehicle parked partially in a driveway and front yard of a residence. The Trooper then ordered Shepherd to exit the vehicle, at which point he was arrested without further incident.

ISP says further investigation revealed the registration on the vehicle was expired and that Shepherd didn’t have insurance for the vehicle.

Shepherd was booked into the Gibson County Jail and charged with Resisting Law Enforcement with a Vehicle, Level 6 Felony, and Reckless Driving, Class A Misdemeanor.
