Darren Doyle, story
A Morgantown Road Tire dealer is back in jail on multiple charges that include two felonies after a short police chase resulting in the man being tazed, all which began from an alleged harassment complaint.
The Edmonson County Sheriff's Office responded to Sunfish/Bee Spring Road around 1:30 on Thursday where a woman claimed that Charlie R. Hayes, (55) of Huff burglarized her home and harassed her. Deputies reported that while in route to the residence, they met Hayes in his 2012 Chevrolet Colorado and immediately attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle; however, they reported Hayes did not immediately stop.
Officials said Hayes led them in a short pursuit and eventually stopped at an abandoned house nearby. The Sheriff's Office reported that during the stop, Hayes refused to follow orders during the stop and allegedly reached into his waistband, where he was tazed.
Authorities also reported that Hayes then attempted to flee from the deputies and he was tazed a second time, and after multiple cycles from the tazer, he eventually complied and was taken into custody.
During a search, deputies reported that they discovered several dozen hydrocodone pills in an unmarked bottle, along with $680 that was seized as evidence as well as Hayes' vehicle.
Hayes was charged with:
Hayes was also served with a bench warrant for not appearing at Hart County Jail last Friday as ordered to serve time for 2015 charges on Possession of Controlled Substance 1st degree and Assault 3rd degree - Police officer.
Hayes was transported and lodged in Hart County Jail.
