Private Detective: Madison County Standoff Ends, Suspect in Custody
A multi-county police chase ended in Madison County and turned into a standoff situation that brought I-75 to a complete standstill Friday.
The chase began near Georgetown and ended with State Police and Sheriff’s Deputies pursuing the suspect. A police helicopter was also on the chase.
Police blocked the interstate because the suspect was reportedly below a bridge near exit 90.
Witnesses tell LEX 18 that the man was in a white truck. They say he wasn’t driving that fast and was on the phone waving at people.
Trooper Robert Purdy tweeted that the suspect ended the standoff peacefully. He was taken into custody.
The interstate is now open in both directions.
