wilson arrestCENTRAL CITY, Ky. (7/16/18) — A 30-year-old Nashville, Tennessee man led police on a chase from Wendy’s Restaurant parking lot in Central City along a portion of U.S. 431 shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday.

Central City Police Department said Patrolman Chris Cummings responded to the Wendy’s parking lot on South Second Street to the report of a suspicious person. When he arrived, Cummings spoke with Darin Wilson, who was driving a 2016 Dodge Challenger in the parking lot. After Cummings asked for Wilson’s operator’s license, Wilson fled south on South Second Street and onto U.S. 431 South toward Drakesboro with Cummings in pursuit.

CCPD said because Wilson had several near collisions with other vehicles, Cummings cancelled his pursuit for safety precautions.

A short time later, Wilson’s vehicle was stopped when Logan County Sheriff’s Department deployed spike strips in Logan County. Wilson was charged by LCSO and taken to jail.

Wilson was charged on Muhlenberg County warrants for first-degree fleeing and evading police/motor vehicle, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment/police officer, four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, reckless driving, speeding more than 26 MPH over the limit, disregarding a traffic control device and driving on a DUI suspended license.

Wilson is being held in the Logan County Detention Center, where he faces other charges by LCSO.
