Investigators say he was taken to the Owensboro Health Mughlenberg Community Hospital where he was treated for weather-related ailments and released.

Officers say just before 10:00 p.m. on Sunday, McIntosh tried to avoid a safety checkpoint at the intersection of US 431 and KY 70.  When Troopers went to stop the car, they say McIntosh sped up, and pulled into a yard behind a home on Chumley Lane in the Beech Creek area.  Just before coming to a stop, officers say McIntosh fired a handgun from the driver’s side window.  Troopers say he then got out of the vehicle and fired several shots, before running into a wooded area on foot.

McIntosh was taken to the Muhlenberg Co. Detention Center and charged with fleeing and evading, wanton endangerment, possession of marijuana, and reckless driving, among other charges.
