A man and woman were arrested earlier today after the man fled Harrison County authorities after they attempted to serve a warrant on him.
Sheriff’s deputies said the pursuit which took police through rural sections of Harrison and Washington County reached speeds of 100 miles per hour at times.
The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department just held a live press conference which was broadcast on WSLM 1220 AM and 97.9 FM regarding the arrest of two this afternoon after a high speed chase through Harrison and Washington Counties.
Ian T. Goebel, 30, and his passenger, Kayla L. Sizemore, 24, were taken into custody after Goebel wrecked the black Nissan he was driving.
The pursuit of the black Nissan Altima ended southwest of Salem on Orchard Road near State Road 56 near the airport. The couple were arrested after their car crashed. One police vehicle was damaged when the suspect car went into a field and turned around and the officer pulled into place to stop the suspects.
Goebel is being treated at the University of Louisville hospital.
Despite the use of roadblocks and stop sticks, Goebel managed to elude police for several miles, leading them on a chase through the countryside.
Goebel attempted to hit officer’s cars head-on several times, according to Washington County authorities.
