Nelson Co. Deputies Arrest Man After Car Chase, Crash Into Pond

NELSON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Deputies with the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office say they have solved a string of car thefts.

But officials said taking the suspect into custody wasn’t easy, occurring only after a chase and then a splash.

Police say Lyons fled when he saw deputies and led them on a chase that ended when he drove into a pond.

Lyons was apprehended after a short foot chase.

Police said he faces 13 charges, including receiving stolen goods and fleeing police.
