A high speed chase that spanned three counties finally comes to an end in Butler County Wednesday afternoon, but not before some serious damage was done.
Law enforcement tells us the chase started in Simpson County around 2:20 p.m., after a Maryland bondsman spotted the fugitive he was looking for. The suspect, 29-year-old Carroll Ignatious Norris, Jr. of Maryland, was driving his pick-up truck at speeds of 100 miles an hour or more through Simpson, Warren and Butler Counties.
Fifteen to 20 law enforcement vehicles were following close behind, and officers say two of their vehicles were rammed by Norris.
After stop sticks and spike strips were used in attempts to slow the assailant, officers finally stopped the man minutes into Butler County.
WBKO has confirmed Norris has eleven outstanding warrants from three different cities in Maryland, on charges ranging from armed theft to fraud and cold checks.
In addition to those, Norris now faces charges in Kentucky, including attempted assault, multiple counts of wanton endangerment and several other charges. Norris is lodged in the Warren County Regional Jail. He'll face his Kentucky charges before being sent back to Maryland.
