Man arrested after police chase in Warsaw

An attempt to calm an angry customer at Meijer in Warsaw ended in a police chase.

Officers were called to the store around 5:20 Monday night. They arrived to find David Metzger upset and refusing to leave. The 33-year-old Claypool resident was warned he'd be arrested for trespassing if he didn't move along. Metzger continued to yell at police and received a trespass warning.

After twenty minutes of this, he finally got into his car and pretended to leave, only to move the vehicle to another parking space.

Police approached him again, informing him he was now under arrest. Metzger cursed at the officers then sped off. Police tried to pull him over in the parking lot, but Metzger continued onto U.S. 30.

Police eventually caught up with him on County Road 250 East, after he lost a tire. Metzger had to be physically removed from his car and taken into police custody. His bad behavior continued at the Kosciusko County Jail, when he bit several jailers.

Metzger was booked on a Class D Felony charge of resisting law enforcement with a motor vehicle, trespassing and reckless driving.

His bond was set at $2,000.
