Two teens behind bars after allegedly fleeing from police - twice.

It all started when a Kentucky state trooper saw a car speeding on Interstate-24 in McCracken County just after midnight Sunday morning.

The trooper tried to pull the car over, but the driver got off the interstate and didn't stop.

Troopers say driver,19-year-old Adrian Sutton of Paducah, made several evasive turns and ended up circling the Marriott Hotel on Technology Drive a few times before jumping out of the car and fleeing on foot.

A trooper caught up to him pretty quickly and deployed his TASER which stopped Sutton in his tracks. Sutton was taken into custody without further incident.

Meantime, 18-year-old Alexandria Worrell, of Kevil, a passenger in the car crawled into the driver's seat of Sutton's car and fled the scene. She was later arrested by Paducah Police and Kentucky State Police.

Both Sutton and Worrell are now being held in the McCracken County Jail on various traffic and drug possession charges.
