A Calloway County resident was jailed after leading deputies on a chase from Henry County, Tennessee, into Calloway on Monday, the Calloway County Sheriff's Office reported Thursday.
At about 7:45 p.m. Monday, Calloway deputies were alerted of a Henry County deputy in pursuit of a black two-door Mercedes on Tenn. 119 coming into Calloway County on Ky. 121 South.
Calloway deputies joined the pursuit and chased the driver, later identified as Molly Armour of New Concord, onto Cypress Trail then to Valentine Road, continuing into the Hamlin community. The chase reached Blood River Road, headed south, when a supervisor instructed deputies to perform a pursuit intervention technique (PIT maneuver) if safe to do so.
As the suspect vehicle entered a left-hand turn and slowed to below 35 mph, Deputy Brandon Winebarger was able to force the car to a stop on the left side of the roadway, the sheriff's office reported. The pursuing Henry County deputy, Sgt. Blake Jenkins, then boxed the vehicle in with his cruiser. Armour was removed from the vehicle and arrested.
According to Calloway authorities, Armour was wanted on two Stewart County, Tenn., warrants and several warrants from Chester County, Tenn. Armour was taken to Calloway County Detention Center and charged with fleeing and evading 1st degree; wanton endangerment, 1st degree; operating on a suspended license; failure of non-owner to maintain required insurance, and several other charges.
The Henry County Sheriff’s Office also has charges pending against Armour.
Neither Armour nor any deputies involved in the pursuit were injured, according to the sheriff's office.
