BURLINGTON, Ky. – A driver led Boone County deputies on a 42-mile chase early Friday, Major Tom Scheben said in a news release.

Jeremy Carf, 37, of Aurora, Indiana, led officers from five different law enforcement agencies for 50 minutes from the I-275 6.6 mile marker to Corinth, Kentucky after a deputy saw a Dodge Caravan driving 90 miles per hour, according to the release.

 

During the pursuit, speeds varied between 40 and 80 miles per hour, deputies said. Authorities tried using “stop sticks” twice, but they were not successful.

While they were driving through Williamstown, Carf called the Boone County Dispatch and said he was scared to stop because he was high, drunk and just broke up with his girlfriend, deputies said. The dispatcher was able to convince him to stop near the Corinth exit.

Carf was charged with speeding, reckless driving, DUI, fleeing or evading, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, operating on suspended or revoked license and a Boone County flagrant non-support arrest warrant. He was being held in the Boone County Detention Center.
