LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The man who led police on a wild chase through rush hour traffic on Friday will be in court on Monday to face multiple charges.

Police say Donald Roberts will face numerous charges, including receiving stolen property, wanton endangerment, and DUI.

Police say Roberts stole an SUV with a trailer and lawnmower hitched to the back in Clarksville on Friday.

When police tried to pull him over, he weaved in and out of traffic on River Road, drove through the grass around the Louisville Water Tower, before finally ditching the SUV and jumping into the Ohio River.

He was finally arrested after officers caught up to him and pulled him, freezing, from the water where he was hiding between barges.
