A 22 year-old man is facing a new charge of resisting law enforcement, in addition to his pre-existing aggravated battery warrant, after an Indiana Conservation Officer on a short foot pursuit while checking fishermen in the Portage area, according to the Indiana DNR.

The suspect hid in a wooded area for a short time before surrendering.

The officer was assisted by the Portage Police Department, Burns Harbor Police Department, the Porter County Sheriff’s Office, and the Indiana State Police-Lowell Post.
