Kentucky State Police have arrested Gary Marvin Daniel of Panco on charges including first-degree assault and first-degree fleeing and evading after they say he led a trooper on a chase through Chavies and down Ky. 28 on Sunday morning.
It ended with a crash, foot chase and a three-hour hunt before state troopers and Perry County sheriff's deputies found the 22-year-old hiding in a river.
The incident began around 10 a.m. when police received a call about a suspicious vehicle near the intersection of Barwick Road and Ky. 28. Police said they tried to contact the driver, but the person took off, eventually colliding with a car that was carrying two adults and a small child. They were treated and released from a local hospital, police said.
