A Channahon, Ill., resident was arrested Sunday on multiple charges following a hit-and-run on I-94 in Porter County, the Indiana State Police said.

According to police, at 7:30 a.m. a driver later identified as Jay N. Moore-McGee, 30, was eastbound on I-94 when he sideswiped a second vehicle and failed to stop. Moore-McGee’s Mitsubishi was clocked at 116 miles per hour, and was also observed weaving and nearly striking a semi-tractor trailer, police said.

A trooper subsequently stopped the Mitsubishi at the 22 mile marker, at which time “the driver and passenger attempted to change positions in the vehicle,” police said. On being approached by the trooper, Moore-McGee--now in the backseat--refused to identify himself and refused to exit the vehicle, prompting troopers to remove him, police said.

“The suspect continued to refuse to identify himself even after being transported to Porter County Jail,” police said. “He was eventually identified later in the afternoon” as Moore-McGee, police said.

Moore-McGee was charged with operating while intoxicated, refusal to identify, resisting law enforcement, reckless driving, and operating a vehicle without ever receiving a driver’s license, police said.
