FULTON COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

A high speed police chase in Kentucky on Friday ended with one man facing multiple charges.

According to Fulton County Sheriff's Office, around 9:49 p.m. on Friday, March 22, a sheriff deputy tried to make a traffic stop on a vehicle clocked at 73 mph in a 55 mph zone on St Rt 125.

The deputy followed the car which sped up in an attempt to flee from the deputy.

The car traveled south on St Rt 125, crossing the Tennessee state line at speeds up to 120 mph.

Officials say the fleeing vehicle almost hit three vehicles and ran through a stop light at over 100 mph.

Eventually, the car came to a stop south of Woodland Mills at Highway 5 and Thompson Street where a felony traffic stop took place.

The driver, Kelvin W. Brown of Hickman, Ky. was taken into custody at the scene by the Obion County Sheriff's Office.

Brown was charged with speeding 26 mph or greater; fleeing or evading police, 1st degree; reckless driving; wanton endangerment, 1st degree; disregarding a stop sign; no operators license; possession of marijuana and tampering with physical evidence.

Fulton County Dispatch confirmed that Brown had an active felony warrant out of Arkansas.

Brown will be extradited once he has answered the charges in Kentucky and Tennessee.
