Christopher Henry

PAINTSVILLE, Ky. — A Floyd County man faces numerous charges after allegedly leading police on a chase through two counties Friday night.

Police say they originally attempted to pull over Christopher Henry, 34, of Grethel, in Floyd County, but he fled along U.S. 23 into Johnson County. After allegedly trying to ram a sheriff’s deputy, police eventually stopped him with spike strips.

Afterwards, he allegedly scuffled with officers as they tried to take him into custody.

Henry is now charged with fleeing police, wanton endangerment, DUI and numerous other charges.
