A traffic stop on Interstate 65 in Jackson County turned into a three-county chase yesterday morning that ended in a crash.

State Police report that they pulled over a vehicle about two miles south of Seymour for a traffic violation. It turned out that the driver, 45-year-old Anthony Glenn of Louisville was wanted on several felony warrants including evading police and wanton endangerment. When the trooper tried to arrest Glenn, he allegedly took off down the interstate.

In Scott County, Glenn’s vehicle ran over a tire deflation device placed in his way by deputies. He continued on into Clark County until he lost control, struck a guardrail and flipped the vehicle. He was taken to Scott Memorial Hospital for treatment and then to jail.

Glenn is facing numerous charges including resisting law enforcement in a vehicle, reckless driving, and operating while intoxicated.
