Police are investigating a dramatic police chase that went through two states and three counties.

They say Robert Ellis led officers on a chase from Louisville, Kentucky, through Floyd and Clark counties in Indiana for at least 45 minutes Thursday.

Indiana State Police said Ellis was wanted in connection with a string of purse thefts in Louisville.

The chase finally came to an end in a cornfield in Clark County.

Once Ellis is pulled from his car, officers swarmed the man and a Louisville Metro Police Department officer and an Indiana State Police trooper can be seen hitting the man.

“It made it for a very extreme and a very tense situation,” said Sgt. Jerry Goodin, of the Indiana State Police. “Obviously we discussed several times whether we should end the pursuit or not end the pursuit. But knowing that it was a felon in the vehicle we felt like that person needed to put apprehended.”

Louisville police is investigating the situation to see if proper procedures and protocols were followed.

After the chase, police say they found at least a dozen purses in the suspect’s vehicle.

    Worth risking the farmers crops and family’s lives for some purses. Just the wages alone probably would have paid for everything lost in the purses.
