Viper man indicted on charges related to Clark police chase

WINCHESTER — A Clark County grand jury has indicted an Eastern Kentucky man in connection with an April vehicle pursuit.

Randall Hagan, 38, of Viper was indicted this week on charges of fleeing and evading police, first-degree wanton endangerment, possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and being a persistent felony offender.

On April 1, police said, Hagan led Winchester police on a chase on eastbound Interstate 64 that ended on the exit to the Bert T. Combs Mountain Parkway, where the pickup he was driving crashed into a guardrail.

Winchester Police Detective Dennis Briscoe repeatedly told Hagan to show his hands, but when Hagan reached under his seat, Briscoe shot him once in the shoulder, Winchester Police Chief Kevin Palmer said at the time. Hagan was treated at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.

Hagan was convicted in 2010 on a charge of fraudulent use of a credit card in Perry Circuit Court.

Hagan is scheduled to be arraigned June 16 in Clark Circuit Court.
