LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say they arrested a Louisville man Sunday afternoon after he crashed his truck, then made a bizarre confession.
According to an arrest report, the incident took place just before 2 p.m. near I-264 and Virginia Avenue.
Police say an officer saw 38-year-old Todd E. Allen driving on I-264, when he unexpectedly cut across two lanes of traffic and went down an exit ramp. Police say he then continued up the on ramp, back onto I-264, "swerving and blowing out the rear tire of his vehicle."
He then exited the interstate again, according to the arrest report, eventually swerving into the grass and driving into some trees.
Allen allegedly jumped out of the vehicle and ran across I-264, over a cement barrier and down the other side.
"This created danger, not only to himself and [an] officer, but also motorists on the highway," police wrote.
Officers alleged caught up with Allen and captured him. Police say he told them, "I've been up for five days. It is nothing personal. It's meth. Don't take it personal. I traded the truck for meth."
Police say they found a bag of meth and marijuana on Allen's person, and that the truck he was driving was stolen. When an officer tried to get Allen to perform tests to determine if he was driving under the influence, Allen allegedly said, "I'm high!"
He was arrested and charged with reckless driving, receipt of stolen property, possession of meth, fleeing police on foot, possession of marijuana and driving under the influence.
