(LEX 18) — A man has been arrested after authorities say he led officers on a chase with a stolen vehicle.

Georgetown police say shortly after 10:00 a.m. Monday, officers attempted to locate a stolen vehicle driven by 38-year-old Glenn McCormick, a known suspect with multiple warrants for his arrest. Officers found the stolen vehicle within the hour at a trailer park on Georgetown Road.

Not long after, police say McCormick backed into a marked police Tahoe. He then allegedly accelerated forward to split the gap between a marked police cruiser and a bulldozer. Police say McCormick was unsuccessful and side-swiped a police cruiser, which had to be towed.

Police say one of the officers attempted to stop the vehicle out on Georgetown Road, and the McCormick failed to yield. Lexington police did not pursue the chase, but a helicopter in the air monitored the suspect's vehicle.

Authorities say Kentucky State Police put down spike strips, and the suspect was detained on Owenton Road. Police say the arrest happened at around noon at Corinth Baptist Church in Grant County, near the Scott-Grant County line.

Officers say Lexington police will charge he McCormick with three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, two counts of first-degree criminal mischief, and at least one count of first-degree fleeing.

No officers involved in the incident were injured.
