LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a Louisville man was arrested after sending Jeffersontown Police on a high-speed chase during a routine traffic stop.
Jeffersontown Police say they pulled over 29-year-old Robert Lawson near the intersection of S. Hurstbourne Pkwy. and Bluegrass Parkway. During a background check, officers say they discovered that a warrant had been issued for Lawson's arrest.
Lawson allegedly told officers that he was driving without a license, and police say he also gave them false information. When officers ordered Lawson from the car, he immediately took off, according to the arrest reports.
Police say they chased Lawson, reaching speeds of up to 90 mph, all the way to the Buck Creek Road exit in Simpsonville. The chase went down Buck Creek Road, and continued through residential areas and main roads, according to police.
The high-speed chase ended with Lawson running his car into a creek, police say. Once the car was crashed into the creek, officers allegedly tried to rescue Lawson by breaking the windows to the car and pulling him out. After pulling Lawson from the car in the creek, police say he continued to resist arrest, and officers had to tase him.
Several officers were injured, and residential property was damaged during the high-speed chase, according to the arrest report.
Lawson is now in custody, and is charged with wanton endangerment, fleeing and evading police, criminal mischief, multiple counts of assault, driving on a suspended operator's license, resisting arrest and giving officers a false name, according to arrest reports.
