Owensboro man arrested after multi-state pursuit

OWENSBORO, Ky. (WTVQ)– Kentucky State Police and the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office were led on a multi-state chase after looking for a man.

KSP says they spotted 29-year-old Jeffery Mays and tried to perform a traffic stop. Troopers say Mayes fled the scene on the US 60 Bypass where he was running stoplights and stop signs. They say Mayes led troopers and deputies into Spencer County, Indiana where they tried to use a tire deflation system.

Troopers say Mayes led them back into Kentucky where he later lost control of his car and hit a parked car on Allen Street and continued to drive off. A trooper used his cruiser to block Mayes’ car from fleeing again. Troopers and deputies were able to arrest Mayes and took him to the hospital because it was suspected he was on meth. He was later taken to the Daviess County Detention Center.
