Darren Doyle, story:
A Brownsville man was captured after running from law enforcement on foot and hiding in the woods for a couple of hours after an altercation with another individual on Tuesday evening, according to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office.
According to the Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to the 2700 block of Chalybeate Road around 6PM to the report of a male subject with a lacerated arm as a result of an altercation. Officials said that while they were en route to the scene, they met a white Honda traveling at a high rate of speed with its emergency flashers activated. One deputy conducted a traffic stop on the Honda while another continued to the scene of the original call.
The Sheriff's Office stated that during the traffic stop, it was discovered that a passenger of the vehicle, Garry L. Foley (25) of Brownsville, was found to be the individual involved in the altercation from the original call, and had fled into the woods at the intersection of KY HWY 259/101.
Foley was able to elude law enforcement in the woods, the Sheriff's Office said, and because he was presumed to be heavily bleeding, a K9 from Butler County was requested to assist with the search. After an approximate 2-hour search, Foley was located lying down in the woods where he was given medical attention. He was extracted from the woods and transported to the hospital by Edmonson EMS, officials stated.
The Sheriff's Office further stated that after an interview with the victim, it was discovered that Foley was a previous resident of the home of the original call but had recently moved out. The victim reportedly returned home to find Foley inside the residence, after he had allegedly forced entry. An altercation ensued and Foley allegedly assaulted the victim and punched a window, causing the laceration to his arm, the Sheriff's Office stated. After being medically cleared from the hospital, Foley was arrested and charged with:
Sheriff Shane Doyle, who coordinated the search effort for Foley, offered his thanks for the assistance from the K9 from Butler County.
"We contacted the Butler County Sheriff's Office to ask for their K9 assistance, but they informed us that their K9 unit was not a tracking dog," Doyle said. "Instead, they directed us to a civilian dog trainer, Mr. Jeffery Barks, who offered his assistance with his trained tracking shepherd. With his help, we were able to locate this subject much quicker and safer than we could have without his resources. We greatly appreciate our neighboring agencies and our working relationships. I also want to thank our local Edmonson County Dispatch for their outstanding work during this incident."
Foley was also served an Emergency Protective Order and was lodged in Hart County Jail. The Edmonson County Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by Butler County Sheriff’s Office and the National Park Service.
