GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. (WPSD/LEX 18) — Police said a drug suspect hopped into a truck when they tried to bust him and then used the truck as a weapon, according to WPSD.

The sheriff said it started when deputies tried to arrest Jerrod Dale, 32, for meth trafficking.

They said he hit an undercover deputy with his truck, then rammed several cruisers during a nearly hour-long chase.

Dale was eventually stopped by spike strips on the road.

Dale has been faced with nearly a dozen charges, including assault of an officer.
