By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A man faces several charges after a pursuit Tuesday afternoon in Paducah

The Paducah Police Department says an officer was on patrol shortly before 4 p.m. and attempted to stop a vehicle after the driver disregarded a stop sign at Levin and Park Avenue. The driver, 23-year-old Harold McKinney of Paducah, stopped, got out of the car, then got back in the vehicle. He then put the vehicle into reverse, nearly striking the officer and his vehicle.

McKinney fled in his vehicle a short distance onto Cruise Avenue before getting out and fleeing into a wooded area.

Officers were able to apprehend McKinney a short time later. Officers found marijuana on McKinney and a stolen handgun under the driver’s seat of the vehicle he was driving.

McKinney was booked into the McCracken County Jail on charges of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, receiving stolen property, first-degree wanton endangerment and other charges.
