KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (WANE) A Kendallville man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after avoiding a traffic stop and leading police on a chase.

An officer started to pull over a light blue old café style motorcycle driven by Kriss E. Bauman, 28, of Kendallville.  A woman passenger jumped off the motorcycle and Bauman continued to drive about a mile from Richmond Street to the east side of Bixler Lake. The woman was not injured.

During the chase, Bauman eluded the two officers who were following him.

Later that day, Bauman was taken into custody at his parent’s home where an undercover officer saw him. His bond was set at $7,500.
