STAND-OFF ENDS IN ARREST SATURDAY
A Taylorsville man was taken into custody after a short chase and stand-off Saturday night. Police attempted to stop Michael Thompson, 27, on Middle Road in Columbus around 7 p.m. He fled to the Tannehill Trailer Park via U.S. 31 North, County Road 550 North and 650 North. Believing Thompson had a weapon, police called for back-up and evacuated homes nearby. After about an hour, Thompson was taken into custody without incident. Alcohol is believed to be a factor. The case is being forwarded to the Bartholomew County prosecutor.
