A multi-state car chase that lasted nearly an hour came to a halt Thursday afternoon when around a dozen police officers cornered the suspect in a field and had to physically attack him in order to subdue him.

Officers from the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department began pursuing Robert G. Ellis, a man who was wanted in connection with a string of recent thefts. Indiana State Police were forced to join the chase when Ellis crossed state lines.

Helicopter footage captured the suspect leading police into Indiana across grass patches and baseball fields. Ellis eventually drove over several police spike strips, causing him to swerve into a nearby field with as many as 22 police cars following. They drew their guns as they approached the truck and pulled Ellis out. The video then shows a few of the officers punching and kicking Ellis.

“After a short struggle, the driver was taken into custody,” the department said in a press release.

Ellis was charged with fleeing/resisting law enforcement, and police found multiple handbags in his truck. According to first responders, he complained of pain while being transported to the hospital. He will be taken to a local jail once released, and his arrest is currently under review.
