The Madison County Sheriff’s Office received a robbery complaint around 9:00 p.m., Sunday November 11, 2018 in the 3300 block of Tates Creek Road.
The initial investigation revealed a man had stolen a Mazda truck by threat with a knife. Deputy Buster Dargavell was responding to the scene when he observed a truck matching the description entering I-75.
Deputy Dargavell activated his emergency equipment to stop the vehicle, but the suspect failed to yield. Deputy Dargavell pursued the vehicle into Rockcastle County. Kentucky State Police Post 11 deployed a spike system which was successful. The vehicle slowed enough for a Trooper from the Kentucky State Police Post 7 to use a “pit” maneuver to end the pursuit.
Charles Bach, 27 years old of Richmond, was arrested and charged with multiple charges including Robbery 1st Degree, three counts of Wanton Endangerment 1st Degree-Police and Officer and DUI 1st.
Bach was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
