Covington Man Arrested in Southern Kentucky After Chase in Stolen Truck

A Covington man was arrested after a high-speed chase in southern Kentucky.

Jason Lay, 45, was booked into the Laurel County Detention Center in London after attempting to elude police in a chase that reached 100 miles per hour.

Officers had attempted to pull over Lay for speeding but he sped away in a Ford Explorer that was stolen in Boone County.

Lay faces twelve charges including wanton endangerment, resisting arrest, and speeding. He is slated to appear in court Friday morning.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story said the truck was stolen in Covington. It was stolen in Boone County. RCN regrets the error.
