KSP Makes Felony Arrest - Attempted Murder of Police Officer
Date of News Release: 03/07/2015
(Hickory, KY ) - On March 6, 2015, at approximately 10:36 PM, Noah B. Hill, 21 of Paducah, was traveling through the city of Mayfield at a high rate of speed. Hill ignored the directions given by a Graves County Sheriff's Office deputy, who was directing traffic at that location due to a traffic hazard. After ignoring the deputy's direction to stop, Hill almost struck the deputy with his vehicle as he continued to travel southbound on Paris Road (in front of Sonic Drive-In) at a high rate of speed.
Tpr. Anthony Harrison with the Kentucky State Police (KSP) was already attempting to catch up to Hill's vehicle to initiate a traffic stop, due to a speeding violation he had observed earlier. After Hill almost struck the deputy, Tpr. Harrison initiated a traffic stop on Hill. Hill was forced to stop his vehicle after he collided with a snow embankment. Immediately following the collision, Hill fled the vehicle on foot. When Tpr. Harrison caught up to and attempted to apprehend Hill, he resisted arrest. Harrison subsequently deployed his CEW (TASER) and gained compliance from Hill. Hill was then placed under arrest without further incident.
Hill was lodged in the Graves County Jail and charged with Attempted Murder of a Police Officer; Resisting Arrest; Fleeing Evading Police (on foot), 1st Degree; DUI, 1st Offense (Aggravated); Disregarding a Stop Sign; Disregarding Signals from Officers Directing Traffic; Reckless Driving; and Possession of Open Alcoholic Beverage Container in a Motor Vehicle. The investigation continues by Trooper Harrison.
