A Louisville man arrested in February following a foot chase with a state trooper near Glendale has been indicted on 11 charges.

David R. Nunn Jr., 42, faces counts of first-degree trafficking of a controlled substance, 2 or more grams of methamphetamine, second offense and gun enhanced; trafficking in marijuana less than 8 ounces, second offense and gun enhanced; possession of a handgun by a convicted felon; first-degree fleeing or evading police; tampering with physical evidence; possession of drug paraphernalia gun enhanced; carrying a concealed deadly weapon by a felony offender; resisting arrest, operating a motor vehicle with an expired license plate; excessive windshield/window tinting and first-degree persistent felony offense.

An indictment is an allegation, not proof of guilt. The defendant is innocent until proven guilty.

According to a citation, a Kentucky State Police Post 4 trooper stopped Nunn after he exited Interstate 65 at Glendale. Police said Nunn fled the vehicle and led the trooper on a foot pursuit on Ky. 222.

According to the indictment returned last week, Nunn has an extensive criminal history that includes previous convictions of trafficking in marijuana and methamphetamine in 1998 in Adair County and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in 2003 in Metcalfe County.

Todd Henson, spokesman for the Department of Corrections, said Nunn was released on parole from Marion County Adjustment Center seven months before his arrest in Hardin County.

According to the DOC, Nunn was serving time for 2008 and 2010 convictions in Barren, Hardin and Morgan counties.

His original charges included first-degree criminal mischief, first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree promoting contraband, first-degree fleeing or evading police in a motor vehicle and first-degree possession of a controlled substance — methamphetamine, according to the DOC.

Following his arrest in February, Nunn’s parole was revoked for use of alcohol and marijuana and leaving Jefferson County without his parole officer’s permission, Henson said. On March 1, Nunn was transferred from Hardin County Detention Center to Roederer Correctional Complex in LaGrange.

Bond in Hardin County is set at $100,000 cash.
