(WHAS11) -- Kentucky State Police have arrested a man for allegedly possessing large amounts of marijuana and trying to flee from police.
Police say a trooper pulled over 31-year-old Travis McGee on the Bluegrass Parkway near mile marker 16 Thursday afternoon. After police asked him to step out of his car, he sped off.
Troopers attempted to stop the car by laying down spike strips across the parkway, but McGee saw them, stopped and got out of the car to surrender to police.
Troopers say they searched his car and confiscated about 3 pounds of marijuana, cash and other evidence consistent with drug trafficking.
McGee was charged with Fleeing or Evading police, Wanton Endangerment, Trafficking of Marijuana under 5 pounds and Tampering with Physical Evidence.
