GOSHEN — A Goshen man pleaded guilty to dealing in methamphetamine and resisting law enforcement Thursday, Aug. 29, at Elkhart’s Circuit Court.

Ronald Bothe, 35, pleaded guilty to dealing in meth by attempting to manufacture it, a Class B felony, and resisting law enforcement, a Class D felony. He agreed to a stipulated sentence of eight years in prison and six years on probation.

Bothe was arrested May 2 after he led police on a 4-mile car chase.

According to initial reports, an officer from the Goshen Police Department attempted to stop Bothe near the intersection of Elkhart Road and Rieth Boulevard, but Bothe continued driving.

When the car pursuit ended in the 700 block of Bainbridge Place, Bothe got out of the car and continued running. At the time of his arrest, Bothe had a warrant for dealing in meth.

Bothe’s sentencing hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 26 at Circuit Court.
