A man who led police on a chase in Casey County hit one state police cruiser and three sheriff's department cruisers on Tuesday.

Brandon C. Roy, 33, of Russell Springs, fled from Casey County deputies who tried to stop him just after 2 p.m., according to a news release from state police.

State police became involved and deployed a Stinger device that deflated two of Roy's tires at 2:32 p.m.

Police were then able to surround the Dodge Spirit Roy was driving and bring it to a stop.

Investigators said they believe that Roy fled because of outstanding warrants and a suspended license, according to state police.

Roy was arrested and taken to the Casey County Jail, where the jail website indicates he is facing two counts each of wanton endangerment, first-degree criminal mischief and resisting arrest, as well as charges of speeding 26 miles per hour or greater over the limit, first-degree fleeing or evading police, driving under the influence, driving on a suspended or revoked license, failure to maintain insurance, leaving the scene of an accident, and having no registration plates.
