nick walkerDRAKESBORO, Ky. (8/20/17) — A Drakesboro man led police on a vehicle pursuit yesterday afternoon after authorities attempted to stop his vehicle for an alleged traffic violation.

Police say Kentucky State Trooper Jacob Fortney attempted to stop a 1992 Chevrolet S10 at 4:05 p.m. on Kentucky 2270. Fortney recognized the driver as Nickolas Clay Walker, 20, who had active felony warrants. Police say instead of stopping, Walker accelerated across U.S. 431 South continuing east on Kentucky 2270 East. He then turned onto Mudd River Union Road and exited the road on Forrest Oak Church Road, where KSP and Muhlenberg Sheriff’s deputies lost sight of the vehicle.

The vehicle was located a short time later at a Kentucky 70 East residence. Walker was taken into custody without further incident.

Walker was charged with first-degree fleeing or evading police/motor vehicle, reckless driving, disregarding a stop sign, second-degree wanton endangerment, resisting arrest and on four warrants for failure to appear.

He is being lodged in the Muhlenberg Detention Center.
