Edmonson Co. man arrested after leading state police on multi-county pursuit

An Edmonson County man has been arrested after leading police on a pursuit through three counties.

On Wednesday, Kentucky State Police observed a blue Toyota passenger car fail to stop at a stop sign on Old Bardstown Road in Barren County. Trooper Jordan Matthews activated his emergency equipment, police said in a press release, but the vehicle failed to pull over and fled Matthews.

Based on the vehicle registration plate, it was determined the owner of the car, 25-year-old Cody Brady, of Rocky Hill, had active warrants.

The vehicle continued fleeing on multiple roadways in Barren, Edmonson, and Warren counties. Troopers used a tire deflation device to bring the chase to an end on Louisville Road in Warren County.

Brady was arrested and charged with first-degree wanton endangerment of a police officer, possession of a controlled substance (drug unspecified), fleeing or evading police, DUI, menacing, tampering with physical evidence, criminal mischief, reckless driving, resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, and speeding (26 mph or more over the limit), along with several non-moving violations. He was also served with active warrants.

A passenger, 26-year-old Brittany Decker, of Park City, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance (drug unspecified), resisting arrest, menacing, tampering with physical evidence, and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was also served with active warrants.

Both suspects were lodged in the Hart County Jail.
