According to Julie Klare, who witnessed the incident from her car, another car sped by her going Northbound on the Big Mac Bridge. "He was going at least 100 miles per hour. Three cop cars followed and cornered him on the 471 bridge. Their guns were all drawn as they pulled the driver out then cuffed a passenger on the other side of the car," she said. "It happened really quickly and the Fort Thomas Police Department seemed to do an amazing job keeping the situation under control."

The car chase began in Cold Spring, then North on AA Highway before coming up Moock Road and into Fort Thomas. He was stopped on 471.

According to Lt. Rich Whitford of the Fort Thomas Police, a Wilder officer tried use stop sticks. "He avoided those and almost struck a police officer. The passenger was trying to exit the car while it was speeding out of the passenger rear window. It's always good when you can stop the chase without anyone getting hurt." 

According to Whitford, the passenger alleged the driver was using heroin. The driver was charged with Felony Fleeing and Alluding, Felony Wanton Endangerment and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
