A high speed pursuit that began in Russellville Tuesday afternoon ended with an arrest near Guthrie.
It started with an investigation by the South Central Kentucky Drug Task Force and led to the pursuit on multiple roadways that reached speeds of over 100 mph before 28-year old Bradford Elliott of Auburn drove into a field off Curtis Small Road and abandoned his vehicle on foot.
He was soon caught by Guthrie Police Chief Matthew Humble and Sgt. Dean Blumel and taken into custody.
The Logan County Sheriff’s Department charged Elliott with fleeing or evading police, first-degree wanton endangerment, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance and other pursuit related charges.
He’s also facing an indictment for being a persistent felony offender, according to the Logan County Jail website.
