Ted J. Abdon, 21, of 4003 Back Road, Franklin Furnace, was charged with receiving stolen property over $500, evading police, wanton endangerment, wanton endangerment of police (all first-degree felonies) and a variety of traffic offenses.
Greenup County Sheriff Keith M. Cooper said Abdon was arrested at about 1:15 a.m. Sunday after a chase involving a stolen car.
Cooper said the pursuit began when Greenup County deputies Tom Robinson and Bob Steward attempted to stop a 2007 Ford Mustang on the Industrial Parkway, Ky. 67.
Cooper said the car had been stolen earlier in South Point, from South Point Ford. After the driver refused to pull over, the pursuit ensued.
Additional units from the Greenup Sheriff's Office and several other agencies then joined the chase, which continued for about 30 minutes and covered more than 50 miles.
During the pursuit, Cooper said Abdon maintained speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour and attempted to wreck or ram police vehicles from a number of agencies.
Cooper said Abdon nearly lost control several times, struck a fence and finally wrecked on Ky. 2070 at Stockholm Road. The vehicle rolled over several times, coming to rest on its top.
Cooper said though Abdon was not wearing a seat belt, he sustained only cuts and bruises, and was taken to Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital, (Ky.) where he was evaluated and released before being locked up.
Robinson also reportedly received a minor injury during the arrest.
The investigation is continuing and other charges may be filed later.
