Police Chase Motorcycle Through Two Counties

A Lexington man is in jail after a late Sunday night police chase through two Kentucky counties.

The chase started in the Brodhead area when a Rockcastle County Sheriff's deputy thought the driver of a motorcycle was driving drunk.

Police say Joshua Graham, 23, of Lexington wouldn't stop while on US 150.

Police say the chase reached speeds of more than 100 miles per hour.

Graham wrecked his motorcycle about one mile into Lincoln County.

Police arrested Graham and took him to the hospital to be checked out.

Deputies say he wasn't hurt.

Police say he tried to hit sheriff's cruisers at least two times during the chase.

Graham is charged with driving under the influence, wanton endangerment and fleeing and evading.

    Why would the police be so stupid as to (yet again) chase a motorcycle at 100mph through two counties??? Such chases simply put other people's lives at risk. They could've simply grabbed his license plate number and picked the guy up at home later without harming anyone. Police can be so stupid in their drive for drama.

    I am so proud of our police dept. Mike Peters is the best sheriff we have had! His deputies are some of the finest in the state!I am so glad this is the county I call HOME.

    Tried to hit a police cruiser while on a motorcycle? Not exactly dealing with the sharpest knife in the drawer, are we?
