An Owensboro man remains in Daviess County Jail following a police pursuit late Sunday evening.

Daviess County Sheriff's Office said that 32-year-old Joseph Horn of Owensboro is facing charges of DUI, Evading Police, Wanton Endangerment, Reckless Driving, Meth Trafficking, and other charges.

On December 6th, before 11PM, a sheriff deputy attempted to pull Horn over for a traffic stop near the intersection of New Hartford Road and East Byers Ave.  Horn didn't stop and a police chase took place for 6 miles.

Horn crashed into a ditch at the intersection of East Parrish Ave and Leitchfield Road in Owensboro and tried to run away on foot.  Deputies caught up to Horn and he was arrested without incident.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
