Man wanted for murder in Ohio pursued and arrested in central Indiana

A fugitive from charges in Ohio and Georgia was arrested after an overnight pursuit in central Indiana Tuesday.


The Whitestown Metropolitan Police Department said an officer tried to pull over the vehicle at 3:15 a.m. on I-65 that couldn't stay in a lane.  It appeared the driver could be intoxicated or impaired.


The driver refused to stop and led authorities on a pursuit that came to an end on I-70 near the State Road 9 exit when a Greenfield police officer was succesful using tire deflation devices.


Marcus Curtis, 26, was arrested and it was soon discovered he was wanted on a warrant for homicide and parole violation in Ohio.  Another warrant, from Georgia, included charges of terroristic threats.


Initially, local charges included resisting law enforcement.  He was taken to the Boone County Jail to await extradition to Ohio.
