Indiana State Police say 51-year-old James R. Coy was arrested after troopers attempted a traffic stop.

Coy was driving down I-69 when Trooper Lukeman attempted to stop the 2006 Pontiac for false registration.

The driver refused to stop and accelerated at speeds over 100mph.

Officials say, they discovered a female passenger in the vehicle unconscious, and then administered NARCAN and treated her until EMS arrived.

Troopers discovered Coy had a suspended driver's license and is currently being held in the Pike County Jail on the charges of resisting law enforcement and reckless driving.

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
