A Louisville man arrested over the weekend after leading authorities on a pursuit.
According to arrest citations, Troopers observed alcohol in the vehicle of Jeremy Macklin, along with an odor of the beverage. Macklin gave officers false identifying information due to having previous warrants. When Troopers asked Macklin to step out of the vehicle, he allegedly put the vehicle in drive and fled the scene, almost striking a Trooper. After a short pursuit, Macklin exited the vehicle in a cul-de-sac and continued to run on foot for several blocks, hopping a six foot high fence at one point. He was pursued once more and apprehended, where he was finally identified. A search of the vehicle revealed open and half empty bottles of alcohol beneath the driver’s seat.
Macklin was lodged in the hardin county detention center.
