SPENCER CO., Ind (WEHT) Two people from the Jeffersonville, Indiana area are arrested in Spencer County after a multi-county, multi-state police chase that started in Louisville. Around 3 a.m. Wednesday, Louisville Metro Police began chasing a blue 2019 GMC Sierra that was reported stolen.

The suspect drove through Harrison, Crawford, Perry and Spencer counties. The high speed chase was often over 100 mph. Authorities tried to stop the vehicle with tire-deflation devices, but that was unsuccessful.

The driver, identified as Nelson Jacob Emery, 25, of New Albany, Indiana, was taken into custody without further incident. The passenger, Kaelin Maire Brian, 25, of Jeffersonville, Indiana, was also taken into custody.
