Knightstown Man Stable After Police Chase, Crash
April 4, 2007 - A Knightstown man who crashed his motorcycle Saturday night after leading police on a high speed chase remains hospitalized in Indianapolis.
Police reports indicate Jesse Fearin, 20, 9828 S. CR 650-W, Knightstown, wrecked his 2007 Suzuki RGSX motorcycle shortly before 10:30 p.m. Saturday after fleeing from Henry County Sheriff's Deputy Adam Bradley on S.R. 3 at speeds of over 100 mph. Bradley said in his report that Fearin ran two red lights at the I-70 interchange before colliding with the rear of another northbound vehicle just south of Fairoaks Road.
Fearin, a 2005 Knightstown High School graduate, was initially taken to Henry County Memorial Hospital after the accident, but was later transferred to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. As of Tuesday afternoon, his condition was listed as fair.
While Fearin was at the HCMH, a search warrant was issued that allowed a blood sample to be taken to determine whether Fearin was intoxicated. Henry County Sheriff Butch Baker told The Banner on Tuesday that it could take six to eight weeks to get back toxicology results on Fearin's blood sample.
Baker told The Banner that no criminal charges have been filed against Fearin yet, but said resisting law enforcement with a motor vehicle, criminal recklessness, speeding, disregarding automatic traffic signals, and violation of his motorcycle learner's permit are possibilities. If toxicology results come back positive, Fearin could also face a charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
