Detroit man arrested after brief pursuit

On July 14, 2018, at 11:33 p.m. Gibson County Special Deputy Tyler Martin attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a silver passenger car for speeding on US 41 near County Road 550 South when the vehicle fled. Deputy Martin was able to stop the vehicle near Tulip Tree Drive and place the driver 35 year old Antoine Lapsley of Detroit into custody. At that point Deputy Martin began a roadside investigation that resulted in Mr. Lapsley being transported to the Gibson County Jail where he was charged with Possession of Marijuana, Resisting Law Enforcement with a Vehicle, and Reckless Driving. Mr. Lapsley has since posted a $1,000 bond. 

Assisting Deputy Martin in his investigation was Sgt. John Fischer of the Gibson County Sheriff’s Office, Sgt. Steve McNeece of the Princeton Police, and Nathan Brown of the Fort Branch Police Department.
