Memphis man arrested after 2-state pursuit

Staff report

Police arrested a Tennessee man Thursday in Murray after he allegedly led officers on a pursuit through two states.

Troopers received word from the Henry County Sheriff's Department in Tennessee that deputies were chasing a 2005 Ford Escape that was heading north on U.S. 641 into Kentucky. Police said the sheriff's department relayed that the driver, 25-year-old Marcus D. Etheridge, of Memphis, was wanted on felony charges in Tennessee for fleeing and evading police and violating his probation. Troopers said they located Etheridge on U.S. 641, three miles south of Murray, and attempted to stop the vehicle, but Etheridge did not stop.

Once in Murray, police said, the vehicle slowed and made several turns, eventually meeting a Calloway sheriff's cruiser at Fairlane Drive and South Ninth Street. Troopers said Etheridge rammed the cruiser, which was being driven by Deputy Richard Palmer, who sustained minor injuries.

Etheridge was arrested and charged with first-degree assault, first-degree wanton endangerment of a police officer, first-degree fleeing or evading police in a motor vehicle, driving while under the influence, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and several traffic offenses.
