Scott R. Goble of Corinth is facing numerous charges following a high-speed chase that led police through two counties on Aug. 10.
Harrison County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Daniel was dispatched to Joe’s Place on KY 36 just a few miles west of Cynthiana at Poindexter around 2:30 p.m.
The initial call was for a stolen vehicle.
While Daniel was taking a statement from the victim, the stolen truck peeled out and headed toward Junction Pike where the driver turned and then pulled onto Lafferty Pike toward Colemansville and back to KY 36.
According to the deputy’s report, Goble could not maintain his lane and was traveling at speeds that reached 93 miles an hour.
The report also details Goble allegedly crossing the center of the road at least four times and nearly colliding with four other vehicles head-on.
Daniel said that Goble refused to stop and avoided two road blocks.
He said Goble braked on KY 36 to turn onto Stringtown-Webber Road and was struck by Daniel’s cruiser.
The pursuit was ended by Dep. Lance Hutchison on Stringtown-Webber Road.
Hutchison struck the 2006 Chevrolet 2500 truck to end the chase.
Goble was found in possession of a handgun and his PBT was .272 and he allegedly admitted that he had taken heroin and meth prior to the chase.
Goble was arrested about an hour after the chase began.
He has been charged with speeding (26 mph or more over the limit); operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol/drugs/etc. (aggravated circumstances), reckless driving, first-degree fleeing or evading police in motor vehicle, first-degree wanton endangerment of police officer, first-degree wanton endangerment, and theft by unlawful taking, $10,000 or more but less than $1 million.
Goble remains at Bourbon County Detention Center under a $25,000 cash bond.
