LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A La Grange man is in custody after police say he led them on a reckless high-speed vehicle pursuit into Oldham County.
According to an arrest warrant, it happened around 8 p.m. on Jan. 17. Police say 56-year-old Michael W. Bingham was waiting in his car outside a store, when a female accomplice ran out of the store carrying $336 worth of designer blue jeans. Bingham allegedly pulled his car up to the side of the store, as the female accomplice jumped in his car.
When a police officer tried to stop the fleeing pair, Bingham allegedly turned, "made eye contact" with the officer, and drove away "at a high rate of speed," running several stop signs in the parking lot and "putting people in danger of injury."
According to police, Bingham ran a red light at the corner of Westport Road and Town Center Drive, before getting on the Gene Snyder Freeway. Police say they followed him -- with lights and sirens activated -- for approximately two miles before he got off at the La Grange Road exit.
That's when police say they abandoned the pursuit, because Bingham placed "the officer, the co-defendant passenger and other motorists" in danger.
Oldham County Police were then contacted, and they were able to arrest Bingham.
He faces the following charges in Jefferson County: Fleeing or evading police, wanton endangerment, reckless driving, disregarding a stop sign, disregarding a traffic control device and theft by unlawful taking.
