Herman had been heading southbound on Interstate 69 near Ashley, Ind., speeding and driving with no headlights or taillights, according to a DeKalb County County Sheriff’s Department incident report.
Officers attempted to stop Herman, but he led them on an estimated 2-1/2 to 3 mile pursuit before exiting the interstate and eventually stopping at a gas station.
Officers reportedly gave Herman several warnings to get down on the ground, but he did not comply, so the offers tased him in order to take him into custody.
The incident report went on to explain that there was a woman and infant also present in Herman’s car, although neither suffered any injuries during the incident.
Herman is being charged with resisting law enforcement with a vehicle, a level 6 felony; battery against law enforcement, a level 6 felony; neglect of a dependent, a level 6 felony; and resisting law enforcement, a Class A misdemeanor.
In Indiana, a level 6 felony is the lowest level of felony. If convicted, it carries a penalty ranging from six months to two-and-one-half years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
Herman hasn’t fought for the UFC since the summer of 2013. His only bout since then has been under the Titan Fighting Championship banner, winning a unanimous decision over Kalib Starnes last May.
