Evansville Man and Girlfriend Arrested after Fleeing Incident on Lloyd Expressway


Vanderburgh County – Wednesday night, October 12, at approximately 8:10, Trooper Hadley was patrolling the Lloyd Expressway near Weinbach Avenue when he observed a motorcyclist traveling east at 70 mph in the posted 50 mph zone. Trooper Hadley attempted to stop the motorcycle near Boeke Road, but rider accelerated and continued east at a high rate of speed. Prior to attempting to stop the motorcycle, Trooper Hadley had obtained the license plate information and identified the rider as Richard Robb, 40, of Evansville. The decision was made not to chase the motorcycle due to the high speed.

Approximately one-hour later, troopers arrived at Robb’s Evansville residence to continue their investigation. Troopers made contact with his girlfriend, Ashley Bailey, 38. Bailey was not a passenger on the motorcycle. A search of the residence was conducted but Robb was not located. Troopers were able to eventually contact Robb by cellphone. While troopers were conducting their investigation, they received several discrepancies regarding Robb’s whereabouts and the location of his motorcycle. Robb later agreed to meet troopers at an address in Haubstadt where he was arrested and taken into custody without further incident.
