(Florence, Ky.) - An Indiana man is facing felony charges after a police pursuit.
On Friday, Dearborn County Sheriff’s deputies pursued a vehicle into Boone County, Kentucky.

He is charged in Kentucky with criminal mischief, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, fleeing/evading police on foot and operating a vehicle on a suspended license.
Bingham also has outstanding felony warrants in Indiana for probation violation and possession of narcotic equipment. He is jailed in Kentucky awaiting extradition to Indiana, where he faces additional charges.
