Man Arrested for Alleged Role in Street Race on I-465

Indianapolis, IN – January 22, 2022 at approximately 11:18 p.m., the Indiana State Police Dispatch Center began receiving emergency calls about vehicles intentionally blocking traffic on I-465 near 56th Street on the city’s east side. Callers were reporting several cars were lined up across the lanes to stop traffic so other vehicles could race. Troopers responded to the area and observed what appeared to be an organized street race occurring. One of the vehicles that was blocking traffic was pulled over and the driver was subsequently arrested. 25 year old Martin Green of Indianapolis now faces the preliminary charges of:

  • Obstruction of Traffic with a motor vehicle – level 6 felony
  • Driving While Suspended with a Prior Suspension within 10 years – Class A Misdemeanor

Green was allegedly using his vehicle to block oncoming traffic in the northbound lanes of I-465 to allow other vehicles in his group to race. 

Investigators believe the groups involved in this street race are also responsible for a similar event that occurred September 25, 2021, which Mr. Green allegedly participated.

The charges listed are preliminary, actual charges will be determined by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office upon review of the case. All suspects are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in court.

The Indiana State Police would like to encourage the public to report reckless or aggressive driving by calling 911. This investigation is ongoing and there is no further information to release at this time.
