Lieutenant Colonel Herschel Day of Newport Police said his officers were dispatched to the Speedway on 10th Street in Newport for an individual that was possibly intoxicated. When officers arrived, Jeffrey Rothert, 49 from Fort Thomas, pulled out and did not yield to officers' instructions to stop.

Lt. Col. Day said Rothert then led officers on a low-speed chase from Newport, into Bellevue and up Memorial Parkway into Fort Thomas. The Fort Thomas Police Department, with other agencies, assisted in the pursuit, which ended at around 1:00 p.m. when Rothert pulled his vehicle over.

Rothert was charged with DUI 1st aggravated, reckless driving and fleeing/evading police 2nd.

No one was hurt during the chase.
