Louisville police tried to stop Robert G. Ellis II just before 5 p.m. on Thursday. Ellis took off and led police on a 30-minute chase into Southern Indiana.
Ellis was wanted in connection to a string of purse thefts.
Video of the chase shows Ellis weaving through traffic at high speeds, driving off-road through grass and on sidewalks, cutting through the campus of Indiana University Southeast while being chased by at least 10 cruisers, and finally ending in a cornfield in Clark County.
Ellis was aggressively swarmed by the officers as he tried to exit the truck.
According to police, they found dozens of purses in his vehicle.
