By West Kentucky Star Staff
MCCRACKEN COUNTY - A vehicle pursuit in McCracken County Thursday night led to a woman's arrest on drug and other charges.

The McCracken County Sheriff's Office said a deputy tried to stop a vehicle on John Puryear Drive, near Exit 11. The vehicle began to elude the deputy by traveling onto I-24 at a high rate of speed. Once inside Marshall County, the vehicle left the road and came to a sudden stop.

The two occupants exited the vehicle and began fleeing from the deputy on foot. The driver, 24-year-old Kaylin Herzog of Ledbetter, was taken into custody after a foot pursuit through a wooded area.

After being placed into custody, deputies said Herzog was able to slip out of the handcuffs, pull away from the deputy and flee on foot a second time. She was again taken into custody after another brief foot pursuit.

Deputies searched for but could not locate the vehicle's passenger, a white male. During a search of the vehicle, deputies found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Herzog was arrested and lodged in the McCracken County Regional Jail. She's charged with fleeing and evading (motor vehicle), speeding, reckless driving, two counts of fleeing and evading on foot, escape, resisting arrest, possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle, driving on a DUI suspended license, no registration plates, no registration receipt, failure to produce an insurance card and driving with one headlight.
