A traffic stop in Waddy Tuesday afternoon led to a foot chase by deputies, said police.
Shelby County Sheriff’s Detective, Maj. Jason Rice said that about a dozen or more officers searched for the suspect, who fled when the vehicle was pulled over, just before the Waddy exit eastbound, at about 2 p.m.
“He was a passenger in a car that was pulled over for speeding,” said Rice. “He’s from the Louisville area, and he did have outstanding warrants. We believe that’s why he took off and ran from the traffic stop.”
