gidcumbDRAKESBORO, Ky. (3/12/18) — A Drakesboro man was charged with fleeing police in a vehicle and on foot Friday evening.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Curtis Crick reported he initiated his emergency equipment at 5:33 p.m., March 9 to sop a 2007 Volkswagen traveling on Frazier Street in Drakesboro. Crick said the vehicle did not use a turning signal.

Instead of stopping for the trooper’s vehicle lights, the vehicle sped away, said KSP. After making several turns, the vehicle went off the road on an ATV trail near Gregory Lake, where the vehicle became disabled. The driver then fled on foot but was quickly apprehended, said police.

Crick charged Jeremy Gidcumb, 23, with failure to signal, reckless driving, first-degree fleeing or evading police/motor vehicle, second-degree fleeing or evading police/foot, DUI – first offense, failure to produce insurance card, disregarding a stop sign, first-degree wanton endangerment and third-degree criminal trespassing.

Gidcumb was also charged on a parole violation warrant and a bench warrant. He is being held in the Muhlenberg County Detention Center.
