Police Use Taser On Chase Suspect

Lexington Police officers escaped injury late Thursday night after they say a suspect they were chasing slammed into one of their cruisers.

Police tried pulling over the car at Harrodsburg Road and Lane Allen on suspected drug and traffic violations.

The driver wouldn't stop and led police to New Circle Road, where police say the driver, Cameron Jacobs, 18, hit a cruiser.

When Jacobs ran out of the car, officers used a taser on him.

He's now charged with fleeing and evading.

He also faces traffic and drug charges.

The passenger in the car was arrested on outstanding warrants.
