High-Speed Chase Along I-64 Ends In Dubois County





Ferdinand (NNDC) – An Evansville couple was arrested early this morning after a chase with police that started in Vanderburgh County and ended along I-64 in Dubois County.

Arrested was 37-year old Brandon Ferrari and 25-year old Tanisha Wolfe, both of Evansville.   Both were wanted by authorities in Vanderburgh County prior to the pursuit.

Indiana State Police say shortly after 9:00pm (EST) Thursday, they were notified that that Vanderburgh County law enforcement was in pursuit of a tan Audi A4 northbound on Interstate 69 near the 12 mile marker.

ISP says the pursuit had begun in Evansville, as the driver of the car, Ferrari, was wanted on felony drug charges and
refused to pull over.

Troopers deployed tire deflation devices near the 19 mile marker of I-69 and had believed that Ferrari drove over them; however, the vehicle continued to flee northbound.

Once reaching Interstate 64, Ferrari drove east, leading officers into Warrick County along I-64. With speeds reaching over 120-miles per hour, Warrick County deputies attempted to deploy tire deflation devices near the 53-mile marker,
but were unsuccessful.

Ferrari drove through Spencer County into Dubois County, where at 9:29pm, troopers attempted to deploy tire deflation devices near the 63-mile marker (Ferdinand exit). This attempt was successful, causing tires to deflate and Ferrari to slow to a stop.

ISP says Ferrari stopped at the 65-mile marker and was placed into custody without incident.  Ferrari’s passenger, Wolfe, was also placed into custody.

Both Ferrari and Wolfe were confirmed to be wanted through Vanderburgh County.  Both were taken to the Dubois County Security Center.

After the arrest, ISP says officers searched Ferrari’s Audi, finding narcotics that field tested positive as marijuana and methamphetamine, smoking devices, scales and plastic baggies.

Ferrari is charged with Resisting Law Enforcement with a Vehicle (Level 6 Felony), Possession of Methamphetamine (Level 6 Felony), Maintaining a Common Nuisance (Level 6 Felony), Driving While Suspended with Prior Conviction (Class A Misdemeanor), Possession of Marijuana (Class A Misdemeanor), Possession of Paraphernalia (Class A Misdemeanor) and Reckless Driving (Class C Misdemeanor).

Wolfe is charged with Possession of Methamphetamine (Level 6 Felony), Maintaining a Common Nuisance (Level 6 Felony), Possession of Marijuana (Class A Misdemeanor), and Possession of Paraphernalia (Class A Misdemeanor)

ISP says additional charges may be pending through Vanderburgh County against Ferrari and Wolfe.

ISP says under the law, criminal charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
