Troopers Kevin Doyle and Ala’a Hamed were involved in a pursuit, early this morning, afterwards the alleged driver denied being the driver but keys belonging to the car were found in his underwear. Just before 3 A.M.,Wednesday morning, while patrolling I-80/90 (Indiana Toll Road) east bound near Calumet Avenue they saw an Audi A8 weaving and make several unsafe lane movements.  When they tried to make a traffic stop on the car, it refused to stop and picked up its speed to 140 miles-per-hour. The Audi exited off at the Cline Avenue exit onto west bound Gary Avenue and continued through numerous intersections, stop signs and red lights into East Chicago. The Audi doubled backed and came south bound on Cline Avenue and exited off at 5th Avenue going west bound.  At one point the pursuit came across a train blocking west bound traffic which caused the Audi to make a U-turn over a concrete raised median. The pursuit then continued on 5th Avenue east bound with the Audi again going through numerous intersections disregarding stop signs and traffic lights.
The troopers lost sight of the Audi in the area of Carroll Street and Truman Street.  Hammond Police located the Audi abandoned in the 1500 block of Truman and White Oak. Shortly, thereafter, Doyle and Hamed saw two people walking away from a gas station in the 1400 block of Michigan Street that matched the people in the Audi.
Both denied being in the car and said they were at the gas station buying snacks.  Further investigation revealed the male was in possession of marijuana and was impaired.  During a search of the male, later identified as 31 year old Baylen J. Clark, of Chicago, after placing him under arrest they located a key fob that belonged to the Audi in his underwear.  The female was not arrested.
