Endanger charge brings guilty plea

Staff report

A Paducah man charged with the attempted murder of a police officer entered a plea to lesser charges  in McCracken Circuit Court.

Michael Flood II, 36, pleaded guilty Monday to four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and one count of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, according to Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Raymond McGee.

"The attempted murder charge was dismissed," said McGee.

On March 1, Flood placed a 911 call requesting an officer at his Jewell Lane home alleging that his wife was drinking and out of control, according to officers.

McCracken County Deputy Sheriff Jerry Jones arrived and was speaking with Flood's wife and two children when he heard a rifle shot.

Paducah police officer Nathan Antonities and his K-9 partner later found Flood with two .270 caliber bullets on him outside a wooded area near his home. Police also located a 20 gauge shotgun and a .270 caliber rifle with additional ammunition near the same area.  

Flood accepted an agreement to serve five years for the wanton endangerment charges and five years for the convicted felon in possession of a firearm charge. The time would run consecutively for a total of 10 years, McGee said.  

Flood faces sentencing Aug. 6.
