Justin Bledsoe, 27, of Columbia, was arrested Tuesday night following an anonymous tip he was located in the Harper Valley Trailer Court.
CPD officer Evan Burton arrived at the trailer court just after 7 p.m. and placed Bledsoe in custody with an outstanding felony warrant. He is facing charges including felony wanton endangerment, first degree; and fleeing and evading police in a motor vehicle, first degree. He is also charged with probation violation.
Bledsoe’s charges stem from a Dec. 22 incident when police attempted a traffic stop of Bledsoe on Jamestown Street. He did not stop and continued on Highway 55 South, weaving in and out of traffic. The pursuit was terminated due to pedestrian safety.
Burton was assisted at the scene Tuesday by CPD officer Ethan Pike, deputies from the Adair County Sheriff’s Office and officers with the Kentucky State Police.
