LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Spencer County man is behind bars after he fled from Louisville Metro police officers.

An arrest warrant says on May 5 around 2:30 a.m., officers noticed a car being driven by Jeremy Wade Nalley, 34, of Taylorsville, KY, driving through the parking lots of several closed businesses. When Nalley's car pulled into a gas station lot, police were behind with lights and siren on. The officer called for backup because Nalley put the car into gear as if he was going to take off. Nalley eventually did move the car, but only a few feet.

When police approached the car and ordered Nalley to get out, they saw his hands moving as if he was looking for something. Fearing he was reaching for a gun, the second officer pulled his weapon and demanded Nalley get out of the car. Although Nalley reached for the door handle, police said he put the car into gear and fled onto the Gene Snyder Freeway.

Nalley was arrested May 12 by the Taylorsville Police Department and is lodged in the Shelby County Detention Center. He is being held on two counts of wanton endangerment of a police officer and one count of fleeing or evading police.

    LMPD and the Ferguson effect

    For the past few years, officer involved shootings have led to unprecedented protests. Backlash and violence at times have been so severe, some police said it made them hesitate or even avoid some actions on the job. It's called the Ferguson effect - a reference to the Missouri town where an officer shot Michael Brown in 2014.
