Edmonson Voice Staff Report
Local law enforcement went looking for a Roundhill man on two outstanding warrants from Edmonson and Warren Counties several weeks ago, but the night ended in a high-speed chase that led to the man eluding officials.
Officials said that they were advised that Brian Keith Green Jr, (36) of Roundhill, could be staying with a girlfriend on Hunts Church Road. After arriving at the residence and speaking with the girlfriend, deputies said the woman said she hadn't seen Green in over two years.
Officials said they left the scene and met a van just down the road matching the description of Green's van, but instead of stopping, the van attempted to hit the officer's car head on, but the deputy was able to avoid a collision, Green's van took the ditch at the last minute, and a pursuit began. He was able to get away but authorities said his girlfriend admitted that he had been staying at her residence.
Later, on October 27, 2016, deputies received an anonymous tip that Green was broken down on the side of the road on KY HWY 185 near the Grayson County line. The Edmonson County Sheriff's office reported that they drove to the location, found Green, and he was arrested on the spot.
In addition to the outstanding warrants, he was also charged with Wanton endangerment-first degree police officer, Fleeing or evading police-first degree motor vehicle, and Operating on suspended/revoked license.
The Edmonson County Sheriff's Office was also assisted by the Grayson County Sheriff's Office.
