FRANKFORT, KY - (Tue 16 May 2017) - An Adair County man was arrested and lodged in the Taylor County Detention Center after leading officers from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, Kentucky State Police and local sheriff departments on a four-county chase that began on the Green River Wildlife Management Area Sunday morning, May 14, 2017.
Mark Anthony Mattingly, 38, of Columbia, KY, faces nine charges in connection with Sunday's incident, in addition to two outstanding Washington County bench warrants and a Taylor County bench warrant. His charges from Sunday include resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, first-degree fleeing and evading, reckless driving, first-degree wanton endangerment, operating on a suspended license, off roadway on a wildlife management area, criminal littering and disregarding a stop sign.
Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Conservation Officer Sgt. Travis Neal arrested Mattingly following an hour-long, 55-mile pursuit that involved nine law enforcement officers. The pursuit ended just inside the Springfield city limits after state police officers successfully deployed tire-deflating devices.
The incident began when Neal approached a suspicious vehicle illegally parked off the roadway in the Wilson Creek area of the Green River Wildlife Management Area in Taylor County. Mattingly, the vehicle's occupant, had three arrest warrants pending against him.
A physical altercation ensued between Neal and Mattingly. Neal reported the suspect said he had a gun and allegedly reached toward the floorboard of his truck. Neal disengaged to take cover and Mattingly fled the scene in his pickup truck.
Police pursued Mattingly through Taylor, Marion, Boyle and Washington counties before a Kentucky State trooper was able to use his police vehicle to stop him. Police deployed tire spikes to slow the suspect's truck down before it was finally stopped.
In addition to Sunday's charges, Mattingly was being held for two felony offense probation violations and failure to appear in court, according to Taylor County Detention Center records.
