MAYFIELD, Ky. (WKRN) — A reckless driving stopped turned into a police chase across three different Kentucky counties Friday.
Franklin Vicars, Jr., 57, was driving a 2008 Ford Explorer on Interstate 24 West in Lyon County.
He reportedly slammed on the breaks for an unknown reason, causing a 2009 Dodge Caravan to hit the back of the Ford.
Vicars fled the scene, continuing west. He allegedly got into an altercation at the Minute Mart Gas station in Livingston County off I-24.
He then fled that scene and police caught up to him at the Marshall/McCracken County line on I-24 west.
Police tried to stop Vicars but he refused to yield. A rolling road block was performed to force him to stop.
He was arrested and faces multiple charges across the three counties including assault, wanton endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving and possession of open alcoholic beverage in a motor vehicle.
Vicars was booked in the McCracken County Jail.
