Police arrest man after foot chase at Van Bibber
Indiana Conservation Officers on Tuesday arrested a Greencastle man who was a fugitive on a class C felony warrant for battery.
Steve Strandberg, 27, was arrested following a foot pursuit.
State Conservation Officers Jason Sullivan, Ken Spence and Dale Clark were working on Glen Flint Lake near Greencastle when they came upon Strandberg and a friend fishing.
Strandberg gave the officers an Indiana Department of Correction identification card, showing he had been released from prison.
However, the officers ran a check for warrants and were notified of the felony warrant for battery.
Strandberg then ran on foot and was pursued by officers. A local man riding a golf cart saw the officers pursuing Strandberg and tackled him.
Officers then took him into custody and he was taken to the Putnam County Jail.
In addition to the class C felony battery charge, Strandberg was charged with class A misdemeanor resisting law enforcement and class B misdemeanor public intoxication.
