LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An alert WDRB News viewer was at the right place at the right time Monday afternoon and captured dramatic video of a police chase in Radcliff.
According to a news release, the pursuit began shortly after 12:00 p.m. Monday when Muldraugh Police officers attempted to stop 33-year-old Dale C. Brown of Somerset, Ky., for reckless driving.
The pursuit eventually moved into Elizabethtown, and officers from Muldraugh, Radcliff, and Elizabethtown police departments were involved, as were Kentucky State Police.
At one point, police say Brown struck a Radcliff Police cruiser, "putting it out of commission." The officer was not injured.
Eventually, Kentucky State Police officers were able to pin Brown's vehicle in by surrounding it with their police vehicles. Brown allegedly continued to resist their attempts to arrest him, and he was eventually tasered. The chase ended at the intersection of Ring Road and Dixie Highway in Elizabethtown.
There were no injures.
Police say Brown is expected to be charged with wanton endangerment 1st (of a police officer), leaving the Scene of an accident/failure to render aid or assistance, reckless driving, resisting arrest, DUI and receipt of stolen property.
The vehicle he was driving is alleged to have been stolen.
Although it does not appear that he was injured as a result of this incident he is being treated at Hardin Memorial Hospital and will be lodged in the Meade County Jail once he is released, according to police.
Other charges are forthcoming from the Meade County officers who initiated the pursuit.
Tyrone David of Tyrone David Photos captured a portion of the pursuit on video as it occurred in Radcliff, Ky. The video (shown above) appears to show a white truck striking a vehicle, then moving past it, pursued by several other vehicles and a couple of people on foot.
David told WDRB News exactly what happened, from his perspective.
"I was pulling up to the light. Police had the intersection blocked off and I had all of my equipment in the truck because I had just done a photo shoot," he said.
That's when he saw a couple of police officers laying down a spike strip. David, who says he is a former LMPD officer, said he knew exactly what was happening.
"I knew there was a pursuit coming...so I jumped out and grabbed my camera," he said. "I stayed across the street though."
