Wolfe County Man Arrested Following High-Speed Chase

A high-speed chase Monday morning ended when a Prestonsburg policeman used his car to physically stop a car driven by 19-year-old Michael Brake, of Hazel Green. 

The chase started with speeds of 90 miles per hour. 

When Brake tried to turn into a campground in Jenny Wiley State Resort Park, the officer rammed his cruiser into the car.

Brake was arrested and charged with fleeing police, wanton endangerment, criminal mischief, and numerous traffic violations.
