KSP arrests Murder suspect after multi-county car chase

Kentucky State Police Post 4, Elizabethtown, KY
ELIZABETHTOWN, KY - (Tue 22 Nov 2016) Kentucky State Police Post 03 and Post 04 Troopers along with CVE Region 2 Officers arrested two Louisville men after a lengthy pursuit that spanned several counties. On Tuesday, November 22, 2016 KSP Post 03 received information from the Bowling Green Police Department. in regards to a possible stolen Chevy Tahoe on the William Natcher Pkwy.
Bowling Green Police Officers lost contact with the vehicle after it entered onto I-65 northbound. A short time later KSP Post 03 Troopers along with CVE Officers and Warren Co Sheriff Deputies located the vehicle again and attempted to initiate a traffic stop at the 39 mile marker. The operator of the vehicle then accelerated and failed to stop and continued North on I-65 weaving in and out of traffic in a reckless manner in an attempt to elude Troopers.
KSP Post 04 units were able to deploy tire deflation devices at the 91 mile marker causing the vehicle being pursued to slow down. Two miles later KSP Troopers were able to get the vehicle stopped around the 93 mile marker using a legal intervention maneuver by forcing the vehicle off the roadway where it crashed on the East side of the Interstate. Once the vehicle stopped both passengers fled on foot. After a brief foot pursuit, both male occupants were apprehended without further incident.
The driver, David A. Williamson Jr. (19) of Louisville, KY was charged with speeding (26 mph over), Fleeing or Evading Police 1 st (Motor Vehicle), Fleeing or Evading Police 1 st (On Foot), Reckless Driving, Improper Lane Usage, Failure To Wear Seat Belt, Receiving Stolen Property (Under $10,000), Carrying A Concealed Deadly Weapon, Following Another Vehicle Too Closely, Wanton Endangerment 1 st , and Tampering with Physical Evidence. He was later lodged in the Hardin Co. Detention Center.
The passenger, Lamontrez D. Jackson (24) also of Louisville, KY was served with outstanding Jefferson Co. warrants for Murder, Robbery 1st and Persistent Felony Offender. He was also charged with Wanton Endangerment 1st (Police Officer), Wanton Endangerment 1st , Fleeing or Evading Police 1st (Motor Vehicle), Fleeing or Evading Police 1st (On Foot), Possession of a Handgun by a Convicted Felon, Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon, Receiving Stolen Property (Under $10,000), and Tampering with Physical Evidence. He was later lodged at Louisville Metro Corrections. Both suspects were treated at Hardin Memorial Hospital for injuries suffered during the accident and were subsequently released into KSP custody.
Note: An individual charged by police or in a warrant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceeding.
