LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - One person is in custody after leading police on a chase that started the Watterson Expressway and on I-71 near Zorn Avenue.

The chase started around 4:25 p.m. when a Louisville Metro police officer who had made a traffic stop of another car on I-264 near Crittenden Drive was nearly hit when the black sedan sped through the scene.

Metro police followed the speeding car east on the Watterson and then south on I-71. The car was finally stopped on I-71 about one more north of the Zorn Ave. exit and the driver arrested.

Jody Burch, 32, was arrested and charged with wanton endangerment of an officer and fleeing police, as well as about a dozen drug and traffic offenses.
