A Hodgenville man has been arrested and charged after he led police officers on a chase.

Thomas A. Cummings Jr., 34, of 559 Kirkpatrick Ave., was arrested Wednesday, July 4, at 8:59 p.m.

According to Cummings' arrest citation, Kentucky State Police troopers attempted to stop him on KY 210.

To avoid troopers, court records state, Cummings drove as speeds of 100 to 110 mph and passed other vehicles in a dangerous and reckless manner.

Records state that, when stopped, Cummings refused to exit his vehicle and resisted arrest.

Cummings allegedly told a trooper that he would hurt him badly when the trooper least expected it.

Cummings was charged with speeding, reckless driving, first-degree wanton endangerment, resisting arrest, terroristic threatening and first-degree fleeing or evading police.

Cummings was scheduled to appear in court for arraignment on Monday, July 9.
