A Huntingburg man was placed under arrest on a number of charges after police say he drove his Bronco through a property causing damage to the property’s parking lot and yard Monday afternoon.
Just after 2 pm, officers with the Huntingburg Police Department were called to the property at 8th and Van Buren streets to the report of a Ford Bronco damaging the parking lot and yard at that location. When they arrived on scene, police say they found the SUV stuck in mud in the yard.

After activating the patrol unit’s emergency lights, the officer attempted to make contact with the driver 18-year old Wayne Allbrittion of Huntingburg. Police say Allbritton then drove the SUV from the yard and headed west on 8th Street to Jackson.

A pursuit insured on Jackson Street to 9th and when the Bronco turned on Cour De Lane, Allbritton lost control and went over an embankment onto the railroad tracks adjacent to the road.

Police say Allbritton and a passenger jumped from the Bronco with Allbritton fleeing on foot from the scene. Police say he ran to Van Buren and then doubled back to Cour De Lane where he was apprehended on 7th Street.

Allbritton was taken to and booked into the Dubois County Security Center for resisting law enforcement with a motor vehicle, criminal recklessness and operating without ever receiving a license.
