    A couple of suspects fleeing by car from Austin police officers and Scott County deputies ran out of luck quickly on Saturday, August 29, in Austin.
    When the chase ended at Austin Community Park, the pair found themselves surrounded by baseball bat-wielding members of the Amick-Baker-Kellems Chapter 156, Fraternal Order of Police. Unbeknown to the pair, FOP members were hosting a softball tournament at the park.
    Taken into custody at the park were the driver, Gregory P. Dilger, 33, Scottsburg, and Stephen R. Perry, 33, Austin, his passenger.
    From Deputy Joe Guarneri's case report, the officer had been in phone contact with Austin Lt. Shawn Hurt just before 5:30 p.m., whop reported to Guarneri that his personal vehicle had nearly been hit head-on by a blue Buick driving southbound on Third Street. Deputy Guarneri soon found the car being driven down the middle of Third St.
At Third and Broadway Streets, the officer said the Buick took the corner and then sped off east on Broadway. That street ends at Community Park, where the FOP tournament was occurring. Deputy Guarneri followed the car, witnessing when the car allegedly passed several vehicles and disregarded stop signs. The vehicle was also seen nearly striking a couple of children on bicycles near the parking lot.

    An Austin man who was allegedly looking for his dog now faces a charge of Class C felony burglary in connection with a break-in at a garage on Blunt Avenue in Austin.
    Donald E. Garrow, 55, Paulanna Avenue, reportedly told Austin Patrolman Crystal Schapson that he was looking for his dog when he was found inside a garage. The building's door had been forced open, according to Ptl. Schapson's report.
    Garrow was apprehended on August 11 after a woman reported that she had seen an unidentified man standing under an awning near the garage. As Ptl. Schapson pulled up to the residence, Garrow reportedly tried to hide inside the garage. He was taken into custody by deputies Rex Herald and Jeremy Arnold.
    Garrow allegedly told the officers that he'd been hunting for the dog. Tools had been thrown outside of the structure and an air compressor was missing, Schapson noted. Marks where the door had been pried were also discovered.
    Garrow was also charged with theft, a Class D felony, and public intoxication, a Class B misdemeanor. In his initial court appearance on August 11, a not guilty plea was entered for him, and a trial date of November 30 was set. His bail was reduced from $75,000 corporate surety/full cash to $25,000 surety/10% cash, and his case was assigned to a public defender.
    Garrow was to be back in court on August 24 for another hearing dealing with his bond.
