LAGRANGE, Kentucky (WXIX) – A Cincinnati man was arrested Tuesday after being chased through multiple counties in Kentucky.

According to the Kentucky State Police, 20-year-old Grant Perciani of Cincinnati faces 11 counts in connection with the chase. (A full list of fees is at the end of the story.)

At an unspecified time Tuesday, state police received a call from a Carroll County dispatcher asking for assistance in stopping a white Jeep on Interstate 71.

A deputy at the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office tried to stop the Jeep allegedly driven by Persiani for displaying incorrect registrations on the vehicle.

KSP said Persiani took off in a jeep when his lieutenant activated the lights.

KSP said the vehicle was later found in Henry County by a police officer who pulled Persiani with emergency lights on.

Again, the 20-year-old man from Cincinnati did not stop and continued driving south on Interstate 71, the trooper said.

He exited Interstate 71 at Lagrange and says that as Perciani was driving through the city, state police used a tire deflator to disable the Jeep. The vehicle stopped on Lagrange Road in Buckner, KSP said Wednesday.

Persiani had two other people in the jeep.

Kentucky State Police said Perciani was taken to the Oldham County Jail on charges of:

  • 26 MPH or faster speeds over the speed limit
