Apparently Paul David Brown led Garrard County police on a chase all around the Lancaster and Buckeye areas in a stolen truck on Christmas Eve before wrecking at the intersection of Poor Ridge and Jack Turner Branch. He then fled on foot, according to Sheriff Ronnie Wardrip, and escaped. A passenger was arrested by Lancaster Police, Wardrip told me.
Officer Allen Weston initiated the chase north of Lancaster on U.S. 27, and Garrard deputies joined in south of Lancaster on U.S. 27. I’m still trying to get in contact with Weston to get more details about the chase and the arrest of the passenger.
Brown was spotted Monday in Nicholasville in a silver VW Jetta that was stolen on Christmas day. He escaped a brief chase by driving through some back yards.
Other reports have said Brown led police on a chase from Garrard to Jessamine on Christmas Eve, but if Brown wrecked in the middle of Buckeye and then escaped on foot, that doesn’t really fit. I’m still trying to dig up exactly how the chase on Christmas Eve transpired.
