EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Two Evansville men were arrested early Tuesday morning after a police chase that stemmed from an altercation at an adult nightclub.

Evansville police say one of the suspects fired a gun into the air while leaving the Busy Body Lounge on Columbia Street around 2 a.m.

According to a police report, a dancer at the club claimed one of the men tried to give her two counterfeit $50 bills.  An argument ensued and one of the suspects pointed a gun at the dancer and another person.  Police say the suspect, Edward Ivy, then got into a black Chevy SUV with another man, Daniel Cook, and fired a shot into the air.

EPD detectives say they found a spent casing at the scene.

The SUV was spotted a short time later and after a chase lasting several minutes, the driver crashed in an alley behind 612 Maxwell Street.  A K9 unit caught up to both men and police say Cook punched the police dog several times while being apprehended.

Ivy is charged with criminal recklessness, possession of a handgun by a violent felon and resisting law enforcement.  Cook is facing forgery/counterfeit charges as well as resisting law enforcement and interfering with a law enforcement animal.

The two suspects were taken to Deaconess for treatment of dog bites.

Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
