An Owensboro man is facing multiple charges after authorities say he led officers on a pursuit through two counties this morning that reached speeds of 120 miles per hour with his three children in the vehicle.
The Daviess County Sheriff’s Office joined the Hartford Police Department in a pursuit in progress around 3:20 Wednesday morning after an officer had stopped a vehicle driven by 28 year old Timothy Tarrance for a suspected DUI. Police say while trying to arrest Tarrance he got back in his vehicle and fled leading the Hartford and Beaver Dam Police Departments on a high speed chase that reached speeds of 120 MPH. Authorities indicate the pursuit ended in the 6000 Block of Highway 231 in Daviess County and when Tarrance was removed from the vehicle he resisted arrest and a K-9 unit had to be deployed.
The sheriff’s office says the vehicle was occupied by Erin Drewry and Tarrance’s three young children.
Tarrance was lodged in the Daviess County Detention Center for DUI, Escape 1st Degree, Possession of Controlled Substance 1st Degree, Fleeing and Evading Police 1st Degree, Resisting Arrest, four counts of Wanton Endangerment, Unlawful Imprisonment and Possession of Synthetic Drugs.
