Brownsville man arrested after high speed chase

A Brownsville man is behind on bars on numerous charges, including being accused of leading police on a high-speed chase through two counties.

Just before midnight, Warren County Deputies say they joined forces with the Edmonson County Sheriffs Office in Smiths Grove to locate 34-year-old Anthony Cardwell, a suspect in an active investigation.

After being identified, authorities say Cardwell led them on a chase reaching speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour from Smiths Grove to Barren County at one point going airborne over railroad tracks and driving into oncoming traffic.

Deputies say his vehicle was immobilized near the 1-65 overpass and he was placed under arrest.

Cardwell is facing a slew of charges including resisting arrest and aggravated DUI.
