KY man arrested on numerous charges during traffic stop

MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - A Kentucky man has been arrested on numerous charges after a traffic stop in McCracken County, Kentucky on Monday, January 30

At approximately 5:03 p.m., detectives with the McCracken County Sheriff's Department saw a 1996 Chevrolet Suburban inbound on Old Mayfield Road.  The Suburban was driven by David A Cook, 36, of Bardwell, Kentucky.

Detectives were aware that Cook had an active felony warrant out of McCracken County. When detectives attempted to stop the vehicle, Cook fled the scene. He was stopped a short time later on Fairmont Street after a brief vehicle pursuit.

Detectives and deputies arrested Cook without incident.

The felony fleeing/evading warrant stemmed from a prior vehicle pursuit involving Cook. Detective Sgt. Riddle had attempted to stop Cook in late 2016 in a separate incident. Cook fled at that time from Detective Sgt. Riddle. The pursuit as terminated due to the dangerous manner in which Cook was driving.

  • Fleeing/Evading Police - 2nd Degree
  • License to be in Possession
