LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Kentucky State Police have charged a Paducah man with the attempted murder of a police officer, along with several more charges.
Noah Hill, 21, was arrested on Friday at around 10:30 p.m., according to a KSP news release.
Officials say Hill was traveling through Mayfield, Kentucky at a high rate of speed.
Authorities say Hill ignored the directions of a Graves County Sheriff's Office deputy, who was directing traffic. Police say Hill did not follow the deputy's instructions to stop and that he almost hit the deputy with his vehicle.
Police say Hill continued to travel south on Paris Road at a high rate of speed.
Another KSP trooper attempted to pull over Hill's vehicle, following Hill's near collision with the deputy. Police say Hill was forced to stop after he hit a snow embankment. Officials say Hill fled the vehicle on foot following the crash.
Officers say Hill initially resisted arrest and authorities had to use a taser device to get Hill to comply.
Hill was taken to Graves County Jail. He faces several charges, including attempted murder of a police officer, resisting arrest, fleeing from police and DUI.
