Two Teens Arrested after Pursuit
By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH, KY - A pair of local teenagers were arrested on multiple charges after fleeing from a traffic stop early Sunday morning.
Just after Midnight, Kentucky State Police Trooper Cory Hamby observed a vehicle traveling at an excessive speed on I-24 in McCracken County. When Trooper Hamby activated his emergency equipment, the driver- 19-year-old Adrian Sutton of Old Mayfield Road in Paducah- sped up and exited the interstate at Exit #4.
After making several evasive turns in an unsuccessful attempt to elude Trooper Hamby, Sutton drove around the Marriott Hotel on Technology Drive a few times before finally exiting the vehicle and fleeing on foot. Hamby gave chase and eventually got close enough to successful deploy his TASER, which ended the chase.
As Sutton was being detained without further incident, the passenger in his car- 19-year-old Alexandria Worrell of Kevil- moved into the driver's seat and fled the scene. She was located by Paducah Police and arrested by Trooper Hamby shortly thereafter.
Sutton was arrested on the following charges: Speeding 22 MPH over limit, DUI 2nd offense aggravated, Fleeing/Evading Police 1st (Motor Vehicle), Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of Open Alcohol Container in Motor Vehicle, Improper Registration Plate, Reckless Driving, Driving DUI Suspended 1st Aggravated, Resisting Arrest.
Worrell was arrested on charges of DUI 1st Aggravated, Fleeing/Evading Police Officer 1st, and Open Alcohol Container in Motor Vehicle.
Sutton and Worrell were each lodged in the McCracken County Jail.
