(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) - A police chase that started in southern Indiana came to an end in metro Louisville early Friday morning.
A police chase that started in southern Indiana came to an end in metro Louisville early Friday morning.
The pursuit started around 1 a.m. Friday when Clarksville police tried to pull over what they said was a stolen car.
George Conley took off, got on Interstate 65 and crossed into Louisville, where he exited the interstate on Fern Valley Road and crashed.
Conley was not injured and was taken into custody.
Conley was driving a Jeep Cherokee, but it is unknown who the owner of the vehicle is.
Conley is facing seven charges ranging from a class C felony to class D felonies. One of them is a violation of a protective order.
Clarksville Police Maj. Darrell Rayborn said Conley may be facing more charges in Louisville, because his ex-girlfriend, who had a protective order against him, was found in the vehicle in the passenger's seat.
"She reported that he picked her up in Louisville, drove her to Indiana where she tried to get out of the car. He forced her back into the car. I'm assuming a short time later, officers saw the car traveling at a high rate of speed and tried to stop it and the pursuit continued across the bridge," said Clarksville Maj. Darrell Rayborn.
The woman was not injured.
Conley is being held at the Metro Corrections.
A Clarksville police cruiser was also damaged.
