Indiana Man Hospitalized After Police Shootout, Long Pursuit

KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (AP) ó A man who fled a traffic stop was hospitalized after exchanging gunfire with officers early Thursday following a police pursuit through several northern Indiana counties, state police said.

Justin Robert Weikel, 40, was taken into custody about 1:45 a.m. in Kendallville by SWAT team officers with Fort Wayne police and transported to a local hospital, Indiana State Police said.

The nature and extent of Weikel's injuries, including whether he was shot or suffered another type of injury, were not immediately known, state police spokesman Sgt. Brian Walker said. Weikel was reported in stable condition as of about 8 a.m., he said.

No officers or civilians were injured in the incident, which began about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday after Weikel, a resident of the unincorporated Noble County town of LaOtto, was stopped by Fort Wayne officers for reckless driving.

1. I know that area well

Red as...well, itís infrared. I called that town Kendall-Tucky-Ville. So rural that I had to pull over to the side of the road and take a dump in a cornfield on more than one occasion. Not the best admission on Earth Day, but we all do what we gotta doo, right?
