Just after midnight on Sunday morning KSP troopers say they attempted to stop a Black 2001 Toyota Camry on KY54 in Daviess Co. for suspicion of driving under the influence.

Officials say the vehicle which was operated by Andrew D. Dampier led police on a pursuit that extended into Spencer County, Indiana.  Spencer County Sheriff's Department then pursued the vehicle where Mr. Dampier struck a Spencer County Deputies vehicle causing an accident. 

The pursuit then came back into Kentucky where stop sticks were deployed and the pursuit ended a short time later and Dampier was apprehended. 

Dampier was lodged in the Daviess County Detention Center. 

KSP says Dampier will have pending charges in Indiana as well.
