LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - A man was arrested after allegedly leading officers on a high-speed chase through two counties that ended in Shepherdsville.

On Wednesday, a deputy tried to stop a man on 2005 Red Suzuki motorcycle on Highway 245 near the Highway 150 intersection, according to information from the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office. The driver did not stop and continued driving down Highway 150, passing through Boston Road, Old Airport Road, and Ben Irvin Road before turning left onto Highway 245.
