Graves Man Jailed After Shots Fired, Pursuit
By West Kentucky Star Staff
BOAZ - A Graves County man is facing a long list of charges after a report of shots fired Tuesday night in the Boaz area led to a pursuit.

The Graves County Sheriff's Office says deputies responded around 10:20pm to the 400 block of Boaz Cemetery Road for a domestic-related complaint where a gun was reportedly discharged inside the home. Deputies say 25-year-old Ryan Long of Boaz was involved in a verbal argument with his mother and siblings. Deputies said Long retrieved a rifle from a vehicle and returned inside with the rifle and fired one round into the ceiling.

Long left the home armed with the rifle. Multiple agencies tried to locate Long in surrounding counties. Late Tuesday night, Graves County deputies were told that a McCracken County sheriff's deputy was in pursuit of Long on Oaks Road heading south toward Graves County.

Graves County deputies intercepted the pursuit on KY 348 West heading west to KY 1684. Long continued to flee from deputies until stopping back at the home on Boaz Cemetery Road where he was taken into custody.

Long was arrested and lodged in the Graves County Jail. He's charged with four counts of wanton endangerment, four counts of menacing, fleeing or evading police in a motor vehicle, four counts of wanton endangerment of a police officer, reckless driving, driving on a DUI-suspended license and tampering with physical evidence.
