Vehicle pursuit with Batavia man

BATAVIA - A Batavia man was involved in a vehicle pursuit with the Henry County Sheriff’s Office, the New London Police Department and the Mt. Pleasant Police Department on Thursday March 14, from New London to Mt. Pleasant.

At approximately 8:32 p.m., a gray Chrysler driven by Drew Garretson was pursued by law enforcement from New London into Mt. Pleasant where he struck a set of stop sticks, ending the chase in the 500 block of Iris Street.

A confirmation check done by law enforcement through NCIC showed that Garretson had multiple active felony warrants from Burlington and Fairfield. Concurrent with his arrest, Drew was charged with Felony Eluding and Driving Under Suspension as well as his active felony warrants.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
