LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A chase in Nelson County on Monday led to a Fairfield, Ky., man facing time behind bars.

A sheriff for Nelson County Sheriff's Office said he tried pulling over Jerico Bentley on a motorcycle when he ran a stop light on Highway 245.

The sheriff chased Bentley all the way to a Bardstown house on Tyler Court  — where he allegedly tried hiding behind a house — then ran into another house.

Bentley, 30, eventually walked out of the house and was arrested. He is facing several charges, including fleeing or evading police, driving without a license and first degree wanton endangerment.
