KSP: NKY escapee arrested in Versailles

FRANKFORT, KY (FOX19) - A man who escaped from police custody in Campbell County has been arrested, Kentucky State Police confirmed.

Walter Hundley, 43, was captured without incident Wednesday in Versailles, according to Trooper Bernie Napier. No word exactly where he was captured.

Napier said Hundley will be taken to Woodford County Jail, but is currently at an area hospital.  No word on the severity of his injuries.

Hundley was believed to be on the run near Frankfort after a stolen car was located in a parking lot on Versailles Road earlier Wednesday.  He had escaped from KSP following a brief foot pursuit.

Hundley was taken into custody Monday in Dayton, after a police pursuit that reached speeds of 70 miles per hour.

Prior to the pursuit, he's accused of reversing his vehicle, striking Dayton Police Chief Halfhill's cruiser.

When he was arrested, officers transported to the Campbell County Detention Center, who refused to accept him until his injuries were checked by a local hospital.

Hundley was at an area hospital where he was able to escape out of a side door.

Tuesday, Dayton Police told us he was likely heading toward Lexington.
