Date of News Release: 07/12/2014

(Mayfield, KY) - The Kentucky State Police are investigating the escape of a Mayfield man who was on home incarceration. Just before 10:00 am on July 12th, State Police was notified by Probation and Parole that Joshua T. Fox had just assaulted a Probation and Parole officer and a Mayfield Police officer who had attempted to take him into custody for a probation violation. The investigation revealed that Fox became combative upon learning of his arrest and assaulted both officers. During the struggle, Fox took Mayfield Officer Logan Hampton's TASER and deployed it striking Officer Hampton. Fox was then able to flee the residence. The TASER was later located outside of the residence. Kentucky State Police, Mayfield Police, and Graves County Sheriff's Office searched the area for several hours but were unable to locate Fox. The Kentucky State Police have obtained warrants for 29-year-old Fox for the charges of Escape 1st Degree, two counts of Assault 3rd Degree, and Theft By Unlawful Taking Over $500.00.
