A Hardin county man was arrested Tuesday after leading several agencies on a pursuit.
A Hardin County Sheriff’s deputy observed the subject, Steven Kolley, driving a motorcycle on Ring Road that had no tail light. When the officer pulled Kolley over at Loves truck stop, he discovered Kolley had 2 active bench warrants. Kolley was instructed to step away from the motorcycle, but instead ran alongside it while pulling the throttle. A pursuit ensued, at which point two Kentucky State Troopers joined. The pursuit, which reached speeds above 80 miles per hour, ended near the intersection of St. John and Long Grove Road. As officials placed Kolley under arrest, they located what appeared to be marijuana dabs, as well as methamphetamine and pipes. A loaded handgun was also found in the saddlebag.
Kolley was charged with numerous items, including fleeing or evading police, wanton endangerment, tampering with physical evidence, among other charges. He was lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center.
