Charges Filed Against Two Michigan Males After Pursuit

This afternoon, detectives with the Indiana State Police Criminal Investigation Division and the Chesterton Police Department formally filed charges that stemmed from a weekend pursuit that resulted in the serious injuries sustained by Porter Police Corporal Scott Cornelison. 

Samuel A. Kuhl has been charged with the following offenses:

  • Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Serious Violent Felon- Level 4 Felony (ISP)
  • Carrying a Handgun Without a License- Class A Misdemeanor (ISP)
  • Resisting Law Enforcement- Class A Misdemeanor (ISP)
  • Resisting Law Enforcement- Class A Misdemeanor (Chesterton P.D.)
  • False Informing- Class B Misdemeanor (Chesterton P.D.)

Aries E. Atlas has been charged with the following offenses:

  • Resisting Law Enforcement with a Vehicle- Level 5 Felony (2 counts)
  • Leaving the Scene of a Crash Involving Serious Bodily Injury- Level 6 Felony (2 counts)
  • Resisting Law Enforcement- Class A Misdemeanor
  • Reckless Driving- Class A Misdemeanor
  • Operator Never Licensed-Prior Conviction- Class A Misdemeanor

Detectives have since determined this case did not involve a kidnapping, as what was originally reported to dispatch and the troopers who stopped the vehicle, according to Sgt. Glen Fifield of The Indiana State Police.  Therefore, kidnapping charges were not warranted in this case.  However, troopers believed that criminal activity was afoot at the time of the traffic stop due to the information given to them at that time.
