State Police arrested a Versailles teenager Saturday following a police pursuit that covered 25-miles through Woodford County.

Investigators said a state trooper pulled over Cody Huddleston, 19, on U.S. 60 west of Versailles for failing to dim his headlights.

State Police said as the trooper approached the car, Huddleston sped away.

Investigators said the pursuit eventually led to Huddleston traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of U.S. 60 toward Versailles.

State Police said to prevent a possible head-on collision, the trooper intervened, at which time Huddleston lost control and his car ended up in a ditch on the southbound side of U.S. 60.

Investigators said Huddleston got out and ran.  He was arrested a short time later in a nearby field.

State Police said Huddleston faces 18-charges, including DUI and Possession of Marijuana. 

He remains in the Woodford County Detention Center.
