Additional details have been released on a pursuit in Oak Grove Tuesday afternoon when an officer fired his duty weapon and two suspects were arrested.
Deputies with the Christian County Sheriff’s Department and officers from the Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force were at the Pilot on KY 115 in Oak Grove in an attempt to serve warrants against a suspect and Deputy Jeff Goulet tried to make a traffic stop on a car driven by 32-year old Brandon Huff of Clarksville.
Huff headed southbound in the parking lot and flattened a tire when he struck a curb, but drove across the grass and onto KY 115. A previous news release from the sheriff’s department says he drove the automobile toward an officer, causing him to fire his duty weapon toward the automobile. No one was injured.
Deputies were able to get Huff to stop near Oak Grove City Hall and he and his passenger—34-year old Dominic Marino of Oak Grove—were both arrested.
Huff was charged with fleeing or evading police, first-degree wanton endangerment of a police officer, possession of burglary tools, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a suspended license.
Marino was charged with fleeing or evading police, first-degree wanton endangerment of a police officer and possession of burglary tools. He was also served with warrants for probation violation and for failing to appear in court.
Police say Huff had a needle in his pocket he admitted to using to ingest methamphetamine and a search of the car revealed burglary tools such as a slim-jim and bolt cutters.
