A Todd County man was arrested after a brief foot chase with Hopkinsville Police Tuesday afternoon.
Charged with theft, fleeing from police, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and unlawful transaction with a minor is 29-year old Kyle Tanner of Sharon Grove. The Hopkinsville Police report says Tanner was observed by Wal-Mart Loss Prevention allegedly concealing items on his person and walking out of the store around 4 pm.
When approached by security, Tanner allegedly ran through Gander Park and onto the Pennyrile Parkway, before running across Fort Campbell Boulevard and jumping a fence. Two officers caught him and took him to the ground. They allegedly found a knife around his neck under his shirt and a box cutter in his right front pocket. Tanner also allegedly had a juvenile acting as a “lookout” during the incident.
