vinson arrestHENDERSON, Ky. (11/10/17) — A 30-year-old Henderson man was arrested early this morning after a police pursuit that began at McDonald’s on South Green Street.

A Henderson Police officer and a Henderson Sheriff’s deputy attempted to stop the vehicle driven by Jonathan Vinson at 2:47 a.m. after receiving a report of possible impaired driver. Police said Vinson pulled into McDonald’s but instead of parking as instructed, proceeded out of the parking lot and would not stop.

Officers pursued as Vinson headed south on Green Street all the way to Kentucky Bypass 425 to the U.S. 60 West intersection. Police said Vinson’s vehicle reached speeds in excess of 100 MPH for a brief period and then traveled as slowly as 30 MPH.

Vinson eventually stopped on Kentucky Bypass 425 where he was taken into custody without further incident.

Vinson was charged with driving under the influence (aggravated) – second offense, first-degree fleeing or evading police/motor vehicle, speeding 26 MPH over the speed limit, no turn signal, reckless driving and possession of an open alcoholic beverage container inside the vehicle.
