KSP: Juvenile tased following high-speed chase

MAYFIELD, Ky. (WTVQ) – Troopers say a juvenile is in custody after leading them on a high-speed chase Sunday in Graves County.

Kentucky State Police say troopers spotted a car going 92 miles per hour headed south toward Mayfield on US 45 North.

After trying to stop the car, troopers say the driver sped up to 110 miles per hour and led them on a nine-mile chase.

Troopers say the driver turned onto a street with no outlet. That’s when troopers say the juvenile driver got out of the car while it was still in motion and tried to run away.

Authorities say they tased and arrested the juvenile, who gave them multiple fake names.

Investigators say they found out the car was stolen from Paducah back in November.

The juvenile is charged with speeding, reckless driving, criminal mischief and several other charges.
