Man Jailed After Three County High Speed Police Chase

A wild scene across three Central Kentucky counties, after a man leads police on a high speed chase.

The chase started after police in Madison County say they tried to pull Stephen Hall over during a traffic stop. But they say Hall took off, reaching speeds of over 100 miles per hour through Fayette County, and into Clark County.

The chase ended when police say Hall turned the wrong way onto
I-64, drove across the median to avoid traffic, and drove the wrong way up an exit ramp at the Mountain Parkway. An oncoming semi-truck blocked the driver in. That's when the suspect took off on foot, and jumped off a nearby bridge into a wooded area. Police soon caught up with him, and placed him under arrest.

Hall now faces drug charges and wanton endangerment charges.
Authorities say Hall's girlfriend, Rachel Farmer, was also in the car during the chase. She was arrested on drug charges.

Police say when they asked the suspect why he ran, he said he thought there was a warrant out for him from another state. After being taken to Clark Regional Hospital to be checked out Hall was taken to the Clark County Jail.

    Fred: GET A LIFE! I have seen your posts on 2 threads/stories and they are all negative. If you hate things in KY that bad...LEAVE! Also, I bet if that was a guy that had just killed your wife or children then you would be all for the chase. When somebody runs from the police they have no idea why they are running or what they are running from so that is why they chase. Also when you decide to run then that is a felony that is being committed. It is liberals like you that make this world what it is today.

    Well, at least he gets 10 bonus points for trying so hard to evade the cops. However, the police, yet *again* get 10 points deducted for being really stupid and putting lots of people at risk by partaking in a high speed chase. Was he really worth chasing 100 miles at high speeds during a busy holiday season where there are lots of kids and grannies out shopping? At least *this time* the cops didn't cause another accident with the high speed chase.

    That guy was right in front of me outside of Madison Co. The police took chase right after I backed away. It was freakin amazing.
