LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky teenager facing charges in a multi-state crime spree was apparently unhappy to see a WDRB camera in court Wednesday.


Dalton Hayes, 18 years old, was handcuffed, but made an obscene gesture as he walked into the Grayson County court today.

Hayes was on the run for two weeks with his 13-year-old girlfriend, Cheyenne Phillips, until police caught up with them in Florida last month.

He's charged with rape, custodial interference, burglary and theft by unlawful taking.

Hayes pleaded not guilty. He'll remain in jail on bond and will be back in court next week.
