Three people were charged Tuesday night in Scott County after a "rolling meth lab" was found in their car, Kentucky State Police said.
Shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday, state police attempted to stop a black 2003 Ford Focus on Outlet Center Drive in Georgetown, police said in a news release. The driver attempted to elude the troopers and struck a state police cruiser.
The driver then ran away but was captured by police. Later, an active methamphetamine lab was found in the car.
The driver, Robert W. Kirby, 33, of Frankfort, and two passengers — Charles S. Short, 43, of Florence and Jennifer M. Remley, 36, of Elsmere — were decontaminated at the scene and were then taken to Georgetown Community Hospital for observation.

Kirby was charged with wanton endangerment, fleeing or evading police, resisting arrest, manufacturing methamphetamine and driving under the influence. Short and Remley were charged with manufacturing meth. Short also was charged with resisting arrest.
All three were lodged in the Scott County Detention Center.
