By West Kentucky Star Staff
MCCRACKEN COUNTY - A Kansas couple was arrested on multiple charges after a police pursuit through Paducah and McCracken County on Sunday.

Troopers with the Kentucky State Police noticed a vehicle speeding along US highway 60. When troopers attempted a traffic stop, the driver reportedly fled into oncoming traffic, nearly striking other vehicles.

Troopers followed the vehicle through the West Paducah community and down Woodville Road, until the vehicle drove through a yard and collided with a tree.

The driver, identified as 35-year-old Steven M. Rule of Topeka, Kansas, fled on foot. The passenger, 40-year-old Hannah B. Holloway, also of Topeka, was detained.

A search of the vehicle reportedly revealed suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Troopers say they were able to determine that the vehicle was stolen out of North Carolina.

Later Sunday evening, Rule was reportedly located in another stolen vehicle at a car wash on Irvin Cobb Drive.

Rule and Holloway were both arrested and lodged in the McCracken County Jail.

Rule is charged by the Kentucky State Police with fleeing or evading police first degree (motor vehicle), first degree wanton endangerment, first degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), possession of drug paraphernalia, receiving stolen property ($10,000 or more), and other traffic offenses. He will also face additional charges by the Paducah Police Department.

Holloway is charged with first degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), and possession of drug paraphernalia.
