Author: West Kentucky Star Staff

A Mayfield man is facing a long list of charges after a high-speed chase in Graves County Wednesday.

According to the Graves County Sheriff's Office, deputies attempted to stop a car for a speeding violation on State Route 121 North, just north of Mayfield. Nineteen-year-old Max Davis allegedly disregarded the deputy's emergency lights and sirens and continued at a high rate of speed.

Davis turned onto I-69 and proceeded north toward Marshall County. Deputies say Davis then abruptly exited the Parkway onto State Route 131 and disregarded the stop sign, almost causing a collision at the intersection.

Davis then traveled south toward the intersection of State Route 131 and State Route 58 East, where he skidded through the parking lot of West Mart gas station, before circling back to State Route 131.

While heading north on State Route 131, police say Davis ran several vehicles off the road and attempted to cause a collision with deputies. In a final attempt to evade deputies, Davis pulled into a driveway on State Route 131, traveled through the yard of a home and became stuck in a ditch.

Davis was taken into custody and lodged in the Graves County Jail. He's charged with fleeing or evading police, 10 counts of wanton endangerment, two counts of wanton endangerment of a police officer, reckless driving, speeding, disregarding a stop sign, failure to signal, improper passing and criminal mischief.
