LANCASTER - A Garrard County grand jury recently indicted three people, including an Indiana man charged with 11 different counts stemming from one day's events.
Archie Taylor, 19, of South Bend, Ind., was charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree fleeing or evading police, no seat belt, improper registration plate, reckless driving, speeding more than 26 mph over the limit, no insurance, improper passing, driving with a learner's permit but without a licensed adult driver in the vehicle, and two counts of theft by unlawful taking.
On Aug. 4, Taylor allegedly attempted to evade police in a fashion that placed others at substantial risk of injury or death. He allegedly drove at speeds up to 120 mph and passed in an unsafe manner in clearly posted no passing zones.
The theft charges involve a contribution jar and an ice cream treat.
State police Detective Van Wright was the grand jury witness. Bail was set at $50,000.
