Fleeing police leads to arrests

Staff report

Two Murray residents faces charges following a man's attempt to flee from police on Saturday, according to the sheriff's office.

Police said officers from the sheriff's department and the Murray Police Department approached Clinton Jones, 32, about 4:45 p.m. to serve him an out-of-county warrant as he walked westbound on Maple Street in Murray. Jones ran, which resulted in injuries to one officer who fell on the ice. He then ran north on Third Street, onto Main Street toward the railroad tracks.

Jones was arrested near the tracks and officers found cocaine and drug paraphernalia on him, according to police.  He faces charges of first-degree fleeing/evading police on foot, first-degree possession of a controlled substance-cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia-buy/possession. He was taken to the Calloway County Jail.

Police said girlfriend Taylor Starks, 22, of Murray was charged with second-degree hindering prosecution or apprehension. Starks came to the sheriff's office Monday and was jailed.
