A man who allegedly left his nine-year old daughter behind to get away from police was caught and arrested after a foot chase early Sunday morning.
Hopkinsville Police Officer Andre Jacobs was called to the 300 block of Bryan Street just after 2 am for the report of a disturbance. When he arrived, 33-year old Kyle Lee Reigel of Hopkinsville allegedly took off on foot and left his nine-year old daughter behind at the scene.
The arrest citation says Reigel ran through several back yards before being caught. He was charged with endangering the welfare of a minor, fleeing from police and public intoxication. Police say he registered a blood alcohol content of .127—well over the legal limit.
