Another man tried to avoid a traffic checkpoint Saturday night - but he got caught.

Kentucky State Police were conducting the checkpoint on HWY-60 East in Henderson when troopers say they saw 44-year-old Jason Brown turn his vehicle around - allegedly trying to skip the checkpoint.

Troopers tried to stop Brown, but after a few miles, Brown turned around and struck the side of a patrol car.

That didn't stop Brown, though, he kept going - forcing two more squad cars off the road before losing control and hitting a tree.

Brown was arrested and taken to the Henderson County Jail where he faces a long list of charges.
