A Western Kentucky man couldn’t elude Kentucky State Troopers, even after leading them on a chase and reaching speeds of 140 mph.

Gregory Mayton is in the Daviess County Jail facing a litany of charges including reckless driving, fleeing or eluding and wanton endangerment.

Troopers say they tried to pull him over for speeding on U.S. 60, and that’s when he floored it. The chase reached up to 140 mph. Troopers caught up with him outside of Philpot where he gave up and stopped.
