As the pickup truck drove through the area of County Roads 700E and 700N, Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Gary Knoef and Deputy Dane Duke used stop stick deflation devices to stop the vehicle, deputies said.

After the pickup’s tires went flat, the truck stopped in a yard in the 100 block of Jackson Street in Hope, deputies said. McNicholas’ address in Hope is listed as 129 Jackson St., deputies said.

McNicholas was arrested on 11 pending warrants and on additional preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement and driving while suspended with a previous conviction, deputies said.
