Man arrested after high-speed chase

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man, previously accused of shooting a victim five times and wanted for cutting off his home incarceration bracelet, was arrested Monday after leading police on a high-speed chase.

Navea Mosley, 18, faces a long list of charges, including escape, criminal mischief, and numerous traffic offenses.

Mosley and a juvenile co-defendant were charged with shooting a victim five times on Oct. 22, 2015, after receiving marijuana from the victim. Mosley was charged with first-degree assault and robbery in that case, which is still pending.

On Monday afternoon, a school resource officer spotted Mosley on the property of The Academy @ Shawnee, violating an order from judge not to come within 500 yards of the school, according to an arrest report.

The report says Mosley fled the scene, nearly striking the officer with his vehicle. Two other officers then tried to stop Mosley, but he sped off. Police say Mosley was going more than 80 miles per hour in an area where the speed limit is 35 mph.

Mosley crashed into another vehicle near the intersection of 34th Street and Northwestern Parkway. One officer stayed with the vehicle and apprehended a juvenile co-defendant while the other officer chased Mosley on foot.

When Mosley was finally captured, police found that he was carrying a stolen handgun, the report says. The vehicle he was driving was also reported to be stolen.
