State Police arrested a man they said took them on a three county vehicle pursuit.

Investigators said on Wednesday morning a State Trooper attempted to pull a vehicle over for speeding in Bath County; the vehicle did not stop.

Officials said Willie F. Burnett IV crashed his car in Clark County on I-64 at exit 97; then jumped out of the car and took off running into field.

Troopers searched for Burnett for over an hour before he was arrested in a corn field off of Rolling Hills Road.

ABC 36 News was there when Burnett was arrested and placed into custody.

Troopers said the 20-year-old Lexington native had a warrant for his arrest for carrying a concealed weapon.
