WARREN CO., Ky. (WBKO) -- A man was arrested after a police chase that happened about 4:30 on Friday morning.

41-year-old Anthony Watkins of Glasgow was arrested after leading police on the chase.

The Warren County Sheriff's Office says it started in Barren County where police temporarily lost sight of him.

That's when Warren County police saw his Chevrolet Blazer on Louisville Road and went after Watkins through Barren and Allen counties before ending in Warren County.

Kentucky State Police put out spikes on Porter Pike causing Watkins to come to a stop when his tires went flat.

He's being held in the Warren County Jail on multiple charges, including driving under the influence, going 26 miles over the speed limit, fleeing and evading police and wanton endangerment of a police officer.
