An Indiana man was jailed on multiple traffic-related offenses Thursday evening after being apprehended more than 10 miles from where he attempted to hit another vehicle with his own.
30-year old Ryan Henkel of Route One, Greenfield, Indiana, told Sheriff's Deputy Scott Noisworthy that he passed a vehicle on the right near the 23 mile marker on the Pennyrile Parkway about 5:30 Thursday evening.
He said he was attempting to hit the other vehicle, whose driver contacted police and maintained contact with Henkel until Deputy Noisworthy made the traffic stop at the 9 mile marker on the parkway.
The arrest card carries charges of wanton endangerment, failure to stop and render aid or assistance, DUI, and possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in Henkel's vehicle.
Henkel refused a breath test after failing ''field sobriety'' tests administered by Noisworthy.
