Trying to outrun the Boyle County sheriff's department by car and on foot resulted in a litany of charges filed Monday night against a driver.

Deputies said they charged John Christopher Montgomery with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, fleeing police, first-degree wanton endangerment, drunken driving, driving on an expired registration and driving without insurance.

Montgomery was in possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia and marijuana when he was arrested, officers said. He was using a suspended driver's license and was wanted for a parole violation out of Mercer County.

According to the sheriff's department, the chase began about 9:30 p.m. Monday, when Deputy Al Isaacs had to avoid an oncoming vehicle that swerved into his path on Houstonville Road in Danville.

Isaacs pursued the car, which pulled in to a bank parking lot. The driver then jumped out and ran before being arrested, police said.

Montgomery was taken to the Boyle County jail.
