Charges follow ATV recovery

Staff report

A West Paducah man was arrested on several charges Monday night after he allegedly struck a police sergeant while riding an all-terrain vehicle and then evaded police.

After receiving complaints about people riding ATVs on the roadway, officers responded to 24th and Jefferson streets just before 7 p.m., according to a news release from the Paducah Police Department. Officer Justin Hodges said he saw four ATVs in the intersection and turned on his emergency lights in an attempt to stop the drivers.

Hodges said the riders fled west on Jefferson, and Officer Jarrett Woodruff tried to stop them moments later at North 16th Street and Broadway, where they again fled, police said.

Sgt. Rob Hefner found two of the ATVs at a liquor store in the 1000 block of North 13th Street, and as he approached to question the drivers, one of them - later identified as Jerry Gray Jr., 28, of Ogden Landing Road, West Paducah - attempted to leave, according to the release. 

Gray allegedly hit Hefner's left leg with the ATV before crashing into a fence at the liquor store.

The release also states that Gray scuffled with Hefner and Officer Travis Counts before he was handcuffed and arrested, and that officers found marijuana and drug paraphernalia in Gray's possession.

At the McCracken County Regional Jail, Gray dropped a bottle of vodka behind him, according to the release, and he denied knowledge of the bottle before officers used a receipt in Gray's possession to indicate he had purchased the bottle just before his arrest.

Gray was charged with first-degree fleeing or evading police, reckless driving, operating an ATV on the roadway, driving under the influence, third-degree assault on a police officer, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, disregarding a stop sign, resisting arrest, and tampering with physical evidence.
