LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The man convicted of manslaughter after killing four teens while driving a stolen car is back in jail.
It's the third strike for Herbert Lee, who was arrested Monday on nine charges, including receiving stolen property, assaulting an officer and operating on a revoked license.
Herbert Lee was spotted driving a car near 22nd and Magazine Streets that was reported stolen from a daycare center.
When an officer tried to pull him over, he jumped out the car window.
Police spotted him in the backseat of another car in an alley a few blocks away.
Police say he fought officers as they pulled him from the car, even causing damage to the back window of the police cruiser once he was placed inside.
"He continues to repeat the same cycle and unfortunately our officers are having to deal with the same cycle over and over again," said LMPD spokesperson Alicia Smiley.
Lee told police he was being set up for "killing those 4 kids in that one stolen car."
Lee served less than three years for the crash the killed Aaron Shields and Jamar, Demar and Marc Claybrooks in 2008. He was also sent to jail last year when he was arrested for driving another stolen vehicle.
