Multiple law enforcement agencies involved in Daviess County, KY chase

Dispatch in Daviess County, KY reports multiple law enforcement agencies have been involved in the chase of an armed suspect.

Authorities say the U.S. Marshals were chasing an armed suspect and the Kentucky State Police joined the pursuit, followed later by the Daviess Co. Sheriff's Office.

According to KSP, U.S. Marshals had a warrant for 35-year-old Stephen Carl Feher and the Marshals knew somehow he was going to be at the Marathon gas station near the intersection of Highway 56 and Hayden bridge road in Sargho.  

Authorities say Feher fled in his vehicle and drove around the back roads near the Marathon for about 15 miles at speeds near 85 mph.

KSP says Feher jumped out of his vehicle at the same Marathon where the chase began where they say troopers apprehended him.

Officials say he was taken to the Daviess co. Detention Center. 

KSP says they will charge him with fleeing and evading, but say they can't comment on the U.S. Marshal's case.
