By WestKyStar Staff
MAYFIELD, KY - A Wednesday morning disturbance call in the Mayfield area led to a chase and arrest of two people.

According to Kentucky State Police, a complaint of a disturbance at 175 Ridgeland Drive was received at 7:40 a.m. Wednesday.  Upon arrival, troopers witnessed a man, later identified as 39-year-old Jason Andrews, of Mayfield, fleeing the scene on foot. Troopers learned that Andrews had two active warrants out of Calloway County.

While troopers and Grave’s County sheriff deputies were still on the scene at Ridgeland Drive, a 911 call was received from a construction worker at His House Ministries on Cuba Road in reference to a vehicle that had just been stolen.  Troopers responded to the scene and verified that the person who stole the vehicle was Andrews. The stolen vehicle was located later on the railroad tracks near West North Street, in Mayfield, with all four tires flat.

At 12:22 pm, while troopers were attempting to locate Andrews in the area of KY 384 and Ballard Road in Graves County, Andrews was seen driving with a female passenger.  A trooper initiated a pursuit of Andrew's vehicle after he failed to yield.  The pursuit ended about five miles later when the trooper terminated the pursuit due to safety concerns.

At 12:46 pm, Troopers located the vehicle again on Renee Lane.  Andrews exited the vehicle, and fled on foot before being apprehended.
The passenger, a woman who was with Andrews, was also taken into custody due to her alleged involvement in providing assistance to Andrews.

Andrews was charged with Fleeing and Evading Police 2nd Degree (by motor vehicle and by foot), Operating on Suspended License, Possession of Controlled Substance 3rd Degree, Possession of Controlled Substance 2nd Degree; and he was served with two warrants out of Calloway County for Failure to Appear.  Additional charges of Theft by Unlawful Taking (Auto) and Criminal Mischief 1st Degree are forthcoming.

Deborah Jackson, the passenger, was charged with Hindering Apprehension/Prosecution 2nd Degree.

Andrews and Jackson were lodged in the Graves County Jail.
