A North Vernon man’s attempt to evade police officers on a moped came up short early Tuesday.
Jennings County Officer Cody Low said he tried to pull over 20-year-old Nathan Philpot for running a stoplight at state roads 7 and 750 on the north side of North Vernon.
Philpot, however, opted to flee through a field north of the intersection. The incident began at 1:04 a.m. when Low said he saw Philpot, who was carrying a 17-year-old male passenger, run a stoplight.
