    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.

    Pirate Football traveled to Elm Street in Brownstown to open 2009 Mid Southern Conference play against the rival Braves.  
    Elm Street ended up being a nightmare for the host team instead of the visitors, as the Pirates' defense dug in and stopped the Braves' high?powered offense for a 35?14 victory.  
    The game was ended due to thunderstorms with 10:46 left in the game.  
    The game began with each team marching the field twice and scoring touchdowns, including an 85 yard kick?off return by senior Michael Baines and a six yard pass from freshman Aaron Daniel to senior Jake Cook.  
    With the score tied at 14?14 starting the second quarter, the Pirates' defense took control, and their offense kept on digging. The Pirates' Aaron Daniel intercepted a Brave pass on the Braves' next drive then countered with a six play 51 yard drive that ended with Michael Baines rushing 10 yards for another touchdown with 2:18 left in the first half (21?14).  
    The Pirates opened the second half with a 12 play 62 yard drive that ended with an Aaron Daniel one yard run for a touchdown with 5:42 left in the third quarter.
    The Braves fumbled the ball on their next possession when the Pirates marched 72 yards in 10 plays ending with a Ethan Bowen 21 yard touchdown run to make the score 35?14 in the middle of the fourth quarter.  
    Aaron Daniel was named the Tumbletown Offensive Player of the game while Logan McCutchen was named Tumbletown Defensive Player of the game by Pirate Pride Sports Broadcasting.  
    The Pirates return home to the Bone Yard this Friday night to host county arch?rival Clarksville in another important MSC match?up. Kick-off is set for 7 p.m.
