A Boonville, Indiana man is facing multiple charges after authorities in Henderson, Kentucky, say he led them on a pursuit and crashed his vehicle.
The Henderson Police Department says it all started around 9:30 p.m. on Sunday night when officers tried to stop a vehicle that had squealed its tires while turning on to 1st Street.
HPD says the driver refused to stop and fled down Water Street at a high rate of speed.
As the vehicle continued to speed off, HPD says the pursuit was ended. Moments later, officers were directed to the riverfront where the same vehicle was reportedly revving its motor.
When they got there, officers confirmed it was the same vehicle as the one from the chase. They say George Grigsby of Boonville was identified as the driver and taken into custody.
Police say they determined that Grigsby had driven through the fenced-in area of Gavilon Grain LLC. before crashing into a tree, immobilizing his vehicle.
Grigsby was booked into the Henderson County Detention Center on the following charges:
- Improper Start From a Parked Position
- Reckless Driving
- Fleeing or Evading Police 1st Degree (Motor Vehicle)
- Operating a Motor Vehicle Under the Influence of Substances
