The ordeal began just after 2:00 p.m. when Roy allegedly fled from Casey County Deputy Chad Weddle on Moxley Road off West Ky. 70 at high rates of speed. A few minutes later, Deputy Weddle discontinued the pursuit out of concern for the public due to the manner in which Roy was driving. A short time later, a second pursuit ensued. That pursuit ended about one mile south of Jacktown on Ky. 49 just after 2:30 p.m. following a “Stinger” deployment by Trooper John Boyd, resulting in two tires deflating on Roy’s 1992 Dodge Spirit car. Police say Roy’s vehicle collided with one KSP cruiser and three Casey County Sheriff’s Department cruisers during the pursuit. All involved escaped injury.
Roy was lodged in the Casey County Detention Center.
