3rd high-speed chase reveals ‘Catch and Release’ legal system becoming a danger for Indianapolis police, residents


    An Indiana man is behind bars after leading the Indianapolis Metro Police on a high-speed chase for the third time in around two month.

    The Marion County pursuit took place amid snowy conditions on Thursday night, after police chased down an accused car thief who attempted to flee.

    The suspect, Donald Williams, has repeatedly been accused of the same crime- three times, to be exact, in sixty days.

    Williams was caught in January after a 12-mile chase, during which he rammed a police car and had to be taken town with a Taser.

    Posting a $500 bond less than four days later, he fled from a traffic stop. Shortly after, he was put on probation.

    According to FOX59, local police unions are blaming a lax legal system.

    “It’s catch and release criminal justice, that is the problem,” said FOP President Rick Snyder. “Our police officers as these reports show are faithfully chasing down the bad guys and getting them locked up, but it’s the criminal justice system that is failing.  It truly is a revolving door.”

    Williams now sits in the Marion County Jail, with no court date as of yet.
