A 43-year-old Kentucky man was charged with assault after an incident at a home in McCracken County on Sept. 27. At about 8:30 p.m., deputies visited the home after receiving a report about a domestic disturbance. Deputies allegedly witnessed the accused man leave the home while running after a woman. When deputies instructed the man to stop, he ran back into the home.
The man reportedly stayed in the home while deputies tried to contact him by phone and vehicle PA system. After several attempts to contact the man failed, the Sheriff's Dept. Special Services Team went into the residence and detained him. He was booked at McCracken County Jail on one count of fourth degree assault with minor injury and one count of first degree fleeing on foot. Because he was free on bond, he was also charged for violating the conditions of his release.
