PARKE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Officials say one man is behind bars after leading police on a chase in Parke County.
The Rockville Police Department has arrested 36-year-old Dennis Adkins of Terre Haute.

Officials say it all started after midnight on Sunday, during Operation Pull Over. Rockville Police say they saw a motorcycle speeding south of Rockville on US 41. Officials say the motorcycle refused to stop, reaching speeds between 90-100 miles per hour.
