Man faces more than two dozen charges after pursuit

SHELBYVILLE (WAVE) – A man arrested Saturday by Kentucky State Police is accused of trying to flee from troopers across county lines when officers tried to arrest him on other charges.

Assisting police in Shelbyville, state police said 25-year-old Terry West, of Shelbyville, left the scene of a robbery and domestic violence assault in a 1990 Ford truck.

A pursuit on Interstate 64 entered Anderson County along several state highways and ended outside of Lawrenceburg on state highway 44, when police say they deployed a tire-deflation device and then stopped the truck with a pit maneuver.

Police say West then tried to flee on foot. After a first attempt failed, troopers subdued him with a stun gun.

West is booked in the Shelby County Detention Center on at least 25 criminal charges, ranging from speeding greater than 26 mph over the speed limit, operating a motor vehicle under the influence with aggravating circumstances and fleeing police, to wanton endangerment against a police officer, domestic violence assault, unlawful imprisonment and second-degree robbery. Bond had not been set Sunday afternoon.
