The vehicle was spotted in Newton County, and police began chasing the vehicle south on Interstate 65. That person called police, and Brown fled, driving east on SR 24 where he crossed into IN, continuing on SR 24 to I-65. Police say he stopped at a Walmart in Watseka, Illinois and told somebody he kidnapped a girl and stole a van.

Police used stop sticks to slow down the van, then an officer rammed the van from behind causing it to come to a stop.

Police surrounded the vehicle, but he refused to surrender and held a knife to the young girl's throat, threatening to harm her. For an unknown reason, the suspect handed the child to police through the broken window. The driver then got back onto I-65. He then drove off and got away from police. Brown was tased, arrested and taken to the hospital.
