Man is arrested after chase

A Science Hill man was arrested early Tuesday morning after he led local law enforcement officers on a 20-minute chase.

35-year-old Scott Kenney was pulled over at 2 am this morning for a traffic violation but sped away when the officer asked him to get out of the car.

The pursuit went west on Kentucky 80 into Nancy, then east on the Cumberland Parkway towards Somerset.

Officials say they saw a bag thrown out the car window while he was driving.

The bag was later identified as pseudoephedrine.

Keeney is charged with fleeing or evading police, tampering with physical evidence, dui, failure of a non-operator to maintain insurance and unlawful possession of a meth precursor.

He is currently in the Pulaski County Detention Center.
