Multiple charges were levied against a local man following a traffic stop Monday in Fulton.
The incident began shortly after 5 p.m. when a police officer observed a vehicle with two small children standing in the backseat on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Fulton, according to a Fulton Police Department press release.
The officer attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver allegedly did not stop and ran several stop signs in the east Fulton area. The attempt to elude authorities lasted for five blocks before the driver stopped.
Police reported officers located about eight grams of suspected marijuana on the driver, Terrill Oneal Taylor, who was subsequently arrested and charged with several offenses. The charges include two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment (for the unsecured children in the backseat), first-degree fleeing/evading police, possession of marijuana, first-offense possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to use a child restraint device, disregarding a stop sign, no operator’s license and failure to maintain required insurance.
Taylor was also served with four outstanding bench warrants for failure to pay child support.
He was transported to the Fulton County (Ky.) Detention Center.
