A local man is in jail for allegedly damaging a vehicle in the Christian Coutny Justice Center parking lot last month and then running away from a bailiff.
The arrest warrant for 53-year old Anthony Shelton of Hopkinsville says he was allegedly seen damaging a vehicle following a court hearing he was a party in. A bailiff witnessed the damage and told Shelton to put his hands behind his back and said she was taking him into custody for the vandalism.
Shelton allegedly took off running and got away, damaging a camera belonging to the Christian County Sheriff's Department in the process. Damage to the vehicle is believed to be at least $1,000 worth.
Shelton is lodged in the Christian County Jail on charges of escape, criminal mischief and violation of a restraining order.
