Glasgow man flees police in two counties


A Glasgow man was arrested after leading state and county law enforcement officers on a chase through southeast Barren County and portions of Monroe County.

Kentucky Sate Police troopers observed a 2009 Nissan Maxima traveling at a high rate of speed in the Freedom community of Barren County on Saturday, according to a KSP press release. Trooper Raymond Chambers attempted to stop the vehicle, at which time the driver accelerated in an attempt to elude law enforcement, according to the KSP statement. The vehicle then traveled into Monroe County at a high rate of speed, at which time the vehicle turned on numerous county roads, according to the statement.

The alleged operator of the vehicle, Steven Hood, 43, of Glasgow was later arrested and charged with a single count each of speeding; fleeing or evading police; first degree (motor vehicle); reckless driving; operating on suspended driver's license; and improper passing. He was also charged with three counts each of wanton endangerment, first degree (police officer) and wanton endangerment, first degree.

Trooper Justin Rountree, Trooper Jeremy Smith and Barren County Sheriff's Office Deputy Chris Wyatt assisted.
