Indiana State Police Trooper Kyle Stovall was parked stationary on Interstate 275 northbound between the Carroll Cropper Bridge and exit 16 when a white 2004 Ford Taurus drove past then ran off the shoulder of the road nearly striking Stovall’s vehicle at about 11:20 p.m. Friday, March 8.

Stovall caught up to the vehicle and attempted to make a traffic stop.

At the same time there was another citizen on 911 with Dearborn County Dispatch describing the same vehicle having run off the road into the median in Kentucky just prior to entering Indiana.

Even though Stovall had his emergency lights and siren activated the vehicle continued traveling northbound at about 40 mph then entered the state of Ohio finally stopping at about the 20 mile marker. At this time Stovall had been joined by Greendale Police Sgt. Kendle Davis when they took the driver into custody without incident.

Both officers detained her until a Hamilton County Ohio Sheriff’s Deputy arrived at the scene.
The driver was later identified as 37-year-old Juana C. Robak of Cincinnati. She was transported by a Hamilton County Sheriff’s Deputy for a certified breath test. The results of the test indicated her BAC to be .14. Stovall will be filing charges against her in Indiana for driving under the influence, a class C misdemeanor, and resisting law enforcement with a vehicle, class D felony. She is also facing driving under the influence charges in Ohio.
