Catlettsburg , Boyd County , Kentucky
Two men were arrested after deputies said a drug bust turned into a police chase in Boyd County, Kentucky, over the weekend.
Kevin Holmes and Adrian Ludaway allegedly sold heroin Saturday to an undercover agent at the Ramada Inn in Catlettsburg, deputies said.
When they pulled beside of the vehicle, deputies said, Homes took off driving down U.S. 23 and deputies used a pit maneuver to get the vehicle to stop. A pit maneuver is a pursuit tactic by which a pursuing car can force a fleeing car to abruptly turn sideways, causing the driver to lose control and stop.
Holmes was charged with trafficking a controlled substance, wanton endangerment, fleeing and operating on a suspended license. Ludaway was charged with drug trafficking.
