MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - A Paducah man is in custody after trying to get away from a McCracken County deputy on an ATV.
The sheriff's department reports it got a call around 8:45 p.m. on Tuesday about a loud ATV driving recklessly through the Woodlawn Mobile Home Park in the Farley community.
When a deputy got to the area, he tried to pull over a man with no shirt, driving a Red 2001 Honda ATV.
The suspect, later identified as 40-year Albert Lester Taylor III, accelerated on the ATV and drove away, leading the deputy on a short pursuit.
According to the sheriff's department, Taylor traveled off road into a wooded area near Yarbro Lane. He apparently traveled through several back yards. He then attempted to hide the ATV behind a home on Meacham Lane and run away on foot.
Thanks to a tip from a concerned neighbor, the sheriff's department reports Taylor was found at a house on Homewood Avenue a short time later.
Taylor was taken into custody and is being held at the McCracken County Jail.
He is facing six different charges including: fleeing from police, driving with a suspended license, failure to notify the DOT of an address change, reckless driving, operating an ATV on a roadway, and disregarding a stop sign.
