A Princeton Police Officer has been suspended with pay, though the reasons for that action remain unclear.
The Princeton Times-Leader reports Officer Abigail Tucker also serves as Caldwell County’s animal control officer and that the suspension took effect after she met with Commonwealth’s Attorney G.L Ovey, County Attorney Bridgie Miller and Judge-Executive Brock Thomas.
Officer Tucker told the paper she refused to resign from either position and that she doesn’t know any specifics about any charges or any allegations that are being leveled against her.
She says she is retaining he own legal counsel and supporters have established the Abigail Tucker Legal Fund at First Southern National Bank.
The Times Leader reports the investigation does not apparently extend into the non-profit Caldwell County Animal Rescue organization.
A Hopkinsville man was beaten unconscious last night and was taken to a Nashville Hospital for his injuries, while police look for three suspects accused in the assault.
The report from Hopkinsville Police says the incident happened around 8:45 at 1021 North Main St, where 18-year old Brandon Gard of Hopkinsville showed up after a friend invited him.
Once there, Gard was attacked by three men who gave him a concussion, a swollen and black eye and a fractured skull. The victim was first taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center, but was later transferred to Vanderbilt University Medical Center to treat his bleeding fractured skull.
Police believe Gard was attacked because he had taken some items the suspects had stolen back to the Kangaroo Mart on North Main. It was unknown if the suspects used any type of weapon in the attack.
What would have been a traffic stop for speeding turned into a chase that went across the state line last night.
Hopkinsville Police Officer Edward Eastman attempted to pull over a vehicle on Fort Campbell Boulevard around 10:30 that was reportedly going 70 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone.
The vehicle continued on and the chase extended to Clarksville, before the driver allegedly stopped and ran from the vehicle. Three female passengers stayed with the vehicle and were reportedly unwilling participants in the incident.
The suspect was able to get away, but Hopkinsville Police believe they know his name and address. If arrested, he will be charged with fleeing from police, wanton endangerment and driving on a suspended license.
Hopkinsville Police responded to a burglary in progress on Denzil Drive last night and arrested the suspect who was still around.
Arrested around on 11pm on 2nd degree burglary charges was 27-year old Marques Dewayne Phillips of Hopkinsville, who allegedly kicked a door open at a 2100 Denzil Drive apartment, where 18-year old Elizabeth Floyd told officers he would have came in had she not slammed the door back closed on him.
The report says alcohol may have been a factor in the incident, with Phillips reportedly having an issue with someone inside the residence.
