MENIFEE COUNTY, Ky. (FOX 56) – A man is in jail after a high-speed chase through three Kentucky counties.

According to the Menifee County Sheriffs Office, deputies tried to stop the vehicle being driven by 31-year-old Joshua Baynum, of California, Ky., for traffic violations and suspicion of operating a stolen vehicle.

The sheriff’s office says Baynum ignored the traffic stop, leading deputies on a 40-mile pursuit, which reached speeds around 120 MPH. The pursuit went through Montgomery County into Clark, ending in Winchester.

Baynum was forced to stop after Clark County deputies deployed a spike strip on I-64 where he continued for approximately two miles by vehicle then got out and ran after being forced to stop.

Baynum was caught after a brief foot. He was then placed into custody and taken to the Montgomery County Regional Jail.
