LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky State Police say they've arrested a Jeffersonville man for driving at a speed of approximately 115 mph on a Louisville interstate.

Police say 30-year-old Kevin Bebnan was driving his 2006 white Dodge Charger eastbound on I-64, near Cannons Lane, shortly after 2 p.m. on Thursday. When officers spotted him, he was allegedly driving 89 mph in a 55 mph zone.

When an officer in a vehicle tried to stop him, he allegedly sped up to 115 mph, "running several vehicles off the road, weaving in-and-out of traffic" and "driving recklessly," according to police.

Bebnan allegedly exited onto I-264, acted as though he was going to exit onto I-64 eastbound, then "at the last second," he exited onto the eastbound Gene Snyder Freeway.

Shortly after that, police say Bebnan crashed his car and tried to run away on foot, but he didn't get far before officers caught up with him. When officers saw him, he allegedly had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and smelled of alcohol.

He was arrested and charged with speeding 25 miles over the speed limit, failure to produce an insurance card, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, resisting arrest, reckless driving and fleeing or evading police.
