MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind. -- A police pursuit Wednesday night beginning in Starke County ended in a Marshall County crash.
The crash occurred around 7:15 p.m. near 7th and Union, right outside Plymouth.
Police tried to pull over the driver for a traffic stop, but the driver reportedly tried to back over a Starke County officer when that officer got out of the car. Police then fired shots at the suspect, but did not hit him, and a chase began.
During the chase, the driver crashed into a cornfield near 7th and Union, and a foot pursuit started.
The Starke County officer pursued the driver on foot, and used a Taser to subdue him.
Marshall County and Walkerton departments also responded.
The suspect, Paul Coffin, was taken from the scene by ambulance and is suffering from road rash.
Police tell us he has a criminal history in both Marshall and Starke Counties.
The Indiana State Police are taking over the investigation, due to the fact that police fired shots.
Coffin was taken to the hospital and was treated and released for his injuries.
He is currently being held in the Starke County Jail without bond pending a review of charges.
