alex arrestOWENSBORO, Ky. (7/17/17) — A teenager apparently took a fast trip to jail when he attempted to elude a Kentucky State Trooper that had clocked him speeding at 91 MPH. Police say when the trooper attempted to catch up to the speeding vehicle, the operator accelerated, turned off onto a road and shut off his headlights late last night.

Police say Alexander Miller, 18 of Owensboro turned off of U.S. 60 bypass onto Carter Road and turned off his headlights. He then turned onto Middleground Court and then Elwood Court, which is a dead end. From there, he left the road and ran into a yard nearly striking a house.

KSP charged Miller with speeding 91 MPH in a 65 MPH zone, first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree fleeing or evading police, reckless driving, disregarding a traffic light and intermediate licensing violations.

Miller is being lodged in the Daviess County Detention Center.
