A Pikeville man faces a long list of charges, after an incident at the Marion’s Branch industrial site yesterday.

After police found no one around the residence, they proceeded to the industrial site. There, they found 43-year-old Christopher Hodges on an ATV. Hodges allegedly failed to stop for the officers, led them on a chase and struck their vehicles with his ATV. He was arrested and charged with three counts of wanton endangerment, two counts of assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, trespassing, DUI and other charges.
