Winamac Man Flees from Police on Moped

James Larvick

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department arrested a Winamac man, Friday, after he eluded police on a moped.

An officer saw that James Larvick was swerving back and forth in his lane and after he did not come to a complete stop at a stop sign, the officer began following him. Larvick was followed on Riverside Drive and the officer turned on his lights and siren to alert Larvick to pull over to the side of the road. Larvick motioned at the officer and kept driving. As they passed the Management Building of the Indian Head Motel, the driver pulled into the driveway.

After an investigation, Larvick was arrested on preliminary charges of Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated and Resisting Law Enforcement.
