An Owenton man was arrested Sunday after attempting to escape Kentucky State Police.
Kentucky State Police Post 5 Public Affairs Trooper Brad Arterburn said 20-year-old Caleb Shafer was arrested for public intoxication at a field party Sunday.
“Someone called in that he was trying to fight people and wouldn’t leave,” Arterburn said. “He was arrested and put in the back of the cruiser and then kicked out one of the windows. He didn’t actually get away, but he attempted it.”
Arterburn said following the incident in the cruiser, Shafer was given the additional charges of third-degree escape and second-degree criminal mischief.
