Two Shelbyville men were arrested Wednesday after a state police trooper chased a vehicle with a cracked windshield and no rear-view mirror, Kentucky State Police said.
The driver, David C. Franklin, 29, refused to stop for police on Scott Station Road in Shelby County, state police said. The driver turned into a driveway, then the vehicle crashed through a wooden fence behind a home.
The vehicle shut down after it went through two more fences. State police said the driver and the passenger ran away and were arrested in a nearby wooded area.
David Franklin was charged with second-degree driving under the influence, operating on a suspended license, no rear-view mirror, excessive window tint, reckless driving, driving with an obstructive view, expired registration, first-degree fleeing and evading (in vehicle), second-degree fleeing and evading (on foot), no insurance, first-degree wanton endangerment and first-degree criminal mischief, state police said.
The passenger, Joshua Franklin, 32, was charged with alcohol intoxication and second-degree fleeing and evading, state police said.
The men were being held Wednesday at the Shelby County jail.
