Greensburg teen arrested for impersonating a police officer

Greensburg — A Greensburg teenager, Ryan A. Rouse, 19, was taken into custody shortly after 3 p.m. Saturday in the 1600 block of South Flatrock River Road following a pursuit that began in Decatur County.

Rush County Sheriff’s Department deputy Steve Houston said Rouse was behind the wheel of a Ford Crown Victoria and was tailgating another vehicle as he traveled northbound on SR 3. Rouse then passed the vehicle as passengers in the Rouse vehicle made what were described as obscene gestures to the other motorist and took off at a high rate of speed.

The unidentified driver of the second vehicle called 911 from a cell phone and gave the dispatcher information regarding the direction of travel of the Greensburg man’s vehicle as it continued traveling north on the state road at a high rate of speed.

During the trip toward Rushville, a number of accidents were narrowly avoided as other motorists got out of the way of the speeding Ford.

Multiple law enforcement vehicles from the RCSD and the Rushville Police Department attempted to locate the car after it turned west on CR 350S in Rush County.

The car was finally stopped in the 1600 block of South Flatrock River Road where Rouse was taken into custody.

He is charged with impersonating a police officer and disorderly conduct. A bond of $10,000 was set.

Two minor passengers in the vehicle were also detained at the scene.

A 17-year-old female was later released to a parent after the investigation was completed.   

Compounding the Greensburg man’s problems with law enforcement was the fact that the license plate on his vehicle did not match the registration paperwork and the Ford was fitted with lights and a working siren.

The vehicle was impounded and towed from the scene.

According to Houston, the investigation is ongoing and additional charges and arrests may be forthcoming.
