Police chase leads to numerous arrests

Police made a number of arrests following a short police chase late Sunday.

It started when officers say a car wouldn't pull over for police on Harrodsburg Road, and a driver eventually fled from the vehicle on Cave Hill Lane.

Police say a passenger remained the vehicle and told officers the suspect was at the Red Roof Inn, off Nicholasville Road.

27 NEWSFIRST cameras were rolling as officers busted down the door of a room at the motel.

Police say they used a key to gain access to the room, but the suspects still had a latch locked on the door.

Officers finally arrested the suspect from the police chase, Thomas Finnell, who was in the room.

He is charged with fleeing and evading, trafficking marijuana with a firearm and unlawful transaction with a minor.

A woman found in the room, Courtney Hall, 20, is charged with hindering apprehension and unlawful transaction with a minor.

Two other adults in the room were also charged with unlawful transaction.

Police say that is because they found a runaway juvenile from Lexington in the room along with marijuana.
