Entry Description

Kokomo – This morning, Timothy Nicholas Jr., 29, Kokomo, IN, was arrested on six criminal charges after allegedly fleeing from Indiana State Police Trooper Adam Moor during a traffic stop. 

At approximately 2:30 a.m., Trooper Moor initiated a traffic stop on a 2004 GMC SUV, which Nicholas was allegedly driving near Home and Boulevard Streets, in Kokomo. Moor was stopping the GMC for purportedly traveling 59 miles per hour in a posted 40 miles per hour zone. When Moor activated the emergency lighting and siren on his police car, Nicholas did not stop. He purportedly led Moor on an approximately three minute pursuit reaching speeds near 100 miles per hour.

The pursuit ended at 3586 East Howard County Road 100 South, after Nicholas allegedly drove the SUV into a yard and fled on foot. He was apprehended approximately two minutes later when officers from the Howard County Sheriff’s Department utilized a police dog to track his location.

Further investigation revealed that Nicholas was allegedly over the .08 blood alcohol concentration limit in which a driver is considered intoxicated in Indiana. Officers also purportedly found a small amount of marijuana in the SUV.

Nicholas was incarcerated in the Howard County Jail on four felony charges for resisting law enforcement with a vehicle, driving a vehicle after having been deemed a habitual traffic violator, operating a vehicle while intoxicated after having a previous conviction within five years, and possession of marijuana with a prior conviction. He also faces two misdemeanor charges for resisting law enforcement and reckless driving.

Trooper Moor was assisted by Trooper Michael Biggs, Trooper A.J. Coffee, Sergeant Brian Dormer, the Kokomo Police Department, and the Howard County Sheriff’s Department.
All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law
