Kansas Man Arrested in Paducah Friday
By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH, KY - A man wanted by the US Marshal Service was arrested and a stolen car was recovered after a Paducah police officer noticed there was no license plate on the man's vehicle.

Officer Keith Thuline was monitoring traffic on Park Avenue when he saw a 1993 Buick with no license plate go past. Thuline said the car turned quickly onto Allen St., then into a parking lot. When Thuline activated his emergency lights, the driver, identified as 42-year-old Michael A. Perry of Topeka, Kansas, jumped out of the car and fled.

Thuline chased Perry around a business and across the street into the Paducah Ford lot. He surrendered after Thuline threatened to deploy his taser.

A computer check revealed that Perry is wanted by the US Marshal Service for a parole violation. A warrant shows Perry spent six months in a Florida prison for failing to register as a sex offender. He was paroled in June, 2012. Perry reportedly violated that release and was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon when he allegedly placed a former girlfriend in a choke hold and put a gun to her head. 

Perry was booked into the McCracken County Jail.
