Drunken High-Speed Chase

A Cobden man is free on bond after being accused in Kentucky of leading authorities on a drunken high-speed chase over the weekend.

21-year-old Esmeraldo Morales-Carmona was arrested early Saturday after a short pursuit that began when McCracken County deputies tried to stop a pickup truck they allege was speeding on U.S. 45.

Authorities say speeds during the pursuit reached more than 110 miles per hour before the truck's transmission failed in nearby Graves County, and Morales-Carmona was arrested.

He was ticketed for speeding, fleeing or evading police, DUI, reckless driving, driving without a license, and driving a vehicle without proper registration.
