The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office said that 37-year-old Mathew J. Gilbert was arrested at 9:05 p.m. Friday night. He was in a vehicle on State Road 39 just north of Rossville at the Clinton-Carroll County line.

Gilbert refused to stop for deputies. He fled into Carroll County with deputies and police in pursuit. He was stopped without incident north of Flora and taken into custody. He was returned to Clinton County Jail and is being held with no bond.
