HOBART, Ind. (AP) - Police say a mud-covered man was arrested when he left a northwestern Indiana cornfield about four hours after investigators believe he tried to run over an officer directing traffic at an apple orchard.

Hobart police say the officer dove out of the way Sunday afternoon before he was hit near County Line Orchard. Other officers chased the car until it drove onto a farm and became stuck in mud.

Police Chief Richard Zormier tells The Times of Munster (https://bit.ly/1wBXxun ) that officers used search dogs and a Lake County sheriff’s helicopter in their attempts to find the man.

Zormier says the man walked from the cornstalks as darkness was about to fall. Charges were pending against the man.
