Shortly before 8:30am, Trooper Brock Werne was patrolling State Road 64 just west of Huntingburg when he observed a blue Yamaha motorcycle traveling eastbound at a high rate of speed. Werne activated his emergency lights in an attempt to pull over the motorcycle, but the driver accelerated away at speeds over 100 miles per hour.
Werne continued pursuing the fleeing motorcycle onto Styline Drive, County Road 500 South, and eventually County Road 400 West, where the driver turned into the parking lot at Styline and attempted to hide. Werne found the motorcycle and driver hiding between a truck and the building, and placed him into custody without incident.
The driver, 43-year old Daniel Aaserud of Holland (pictured), was driving on a suspended license, had expired motorcycle license plates, and was wanted on a writ through Pike County for failing to pay child support.
Aaserud was lodged in the Dubois County Security Center on $750 cash bond.
He’s now charged with Resisting Law Enforcement with a Vehicle (Level 6 felony), Driving While Suspended with a Prior Conviction (Class A misdemeanor) and Reckless Driving (Class C misdemeanor).
