Barren County Sheriff Deputy hurt in suspect pursuit

Man arrested on multiple charges

GLASGOW — A Glasgow man was arrested Monday night after leading Barren County deputy sheriffs in a pursuit on Jack Brown Road that resulted in a collision, injuring one of the deputies.

Deputy David Houchens, 33, was traveling south on Oil Well Road when he lost control of his 2006 Chevy Impala and struck a tree. Houchens was on his way to assist another deputy involved in the pursuit, said Trooper Jonathan Biven, public affairs officer for the Kentucky State Police in Bowling Green.

“I believe he is doing very well,” Barren County Sheriff Kent Keen said. “I’m pretty sure they have released him. He has a fractured wrist and is basically sore and banged up.”
