What would have been a traffic stop for speeding turned into a chase that went across the state line last night.
Hopkinsville Police Officer Edward Eastman attempted to pull over a vehicle on Fort Campbell Boulevard around 10:30 that was reportedly going 70 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone.
The vehicle continued on and the chase extended to Clarksville, before the driver allegedly stopped and ran from the vehicle. Three female passengers stayed with the vehicle and were reportedly unwilling participants in the incident.
The suspect was able to get away, but Hopkinsville Police believe they know his name and address. If arrested, he will be charged with fleeing from police, wanton endangerment and driving on a suspended license.
