An Evansville man faces numerous charges following an early morning chase involving officers from both sides of the Ohio River.
The Henderson County Sheriff’s Department says 54-year old Rick Eugene Beumer of Evansville was involved in a pursuit with Evansville Police that led into
Henderson around 3 a.m. Thursday. The Sheriff’s department caught up with Beumer at the intersection of Second and Green streets, according to Deputy Chris Keller.
Keller says when local officers tried to get Beumer to pull over he sped away again.
The ensuing pursuit spanned several city streets but when Beumer turned onto U.S. 41 and went south across Kentucky 425 his luck ran out as
his vehicle began to break down. Deputies along with the Henderson Police Department conducted a high risk traffic stop and Beumer was apprehended without incident.
Beumer has been charged with first-degree fleeing police, reckless driving, first-degree wanton endangerment-police officer and disregarding a stop sign. He’s also
wanted on several felony warrants out of Vanderburgh County for dealing and possession of Methamphetamine. He is currently lodged in the Henderson County Detention Center.
