A Tennessee man is facing 35 different charges after a high-speed vehicle pursuit Sunday afternoon in Logan County.
The Logan County Sheriff’s Department was notified by Robertson County authorities of a vehicle traveling 100 mph on US 431 South and deputies were told it was about to cross into Kentucky.
Deputy Cody Fox located the automobile and attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but a news release says 48-year old Anthony Maurice Ellis of Springfield refused to stop and accelerated over 100mph.
He turned onto the new Bypass in Russellville and ran a stop sign at Franklin Road before his engine failed and brought the pursuit to an end without further incident. Police say marijuana, prescription medications and heroin were located in the car.
Ellis was arrested for numerous felonies, including first-degree wanton endangerment, trafficking in marijuana, trafficking in a controlled substance and trafficking in heroin.
