A Bradfordsville man is facing charges after police say he jumped from an ambulance, then made a mad dash for the Courthouse.
Shortly after 2pm Wednesday, Casey County Deputy Hannah Lynn, and Liberty Officer Caleb Wesley responded to the dispatch call to Montgomery Street in reference to Jeffery Johnson, of 400 Bucks Branch Rd., Brandfordsville, who had jumped from an ambulance onto the roadway and ran.
Several minutes later, Officer Wesley was dispatched to the call that a man had broke into a residence on Montgomery Street. The resident, Jennifer Luttrell, told Liberty Police Chief Steve Garrett that Johnson ran into the home through an unlocked door and stated, "I am running from the law, help me hide!" Luttrell advised him to leave. He then reportedly took off on foot to the Casey County Court House and made contact with Deputy Robin Lynn at the Sheriff's Office.
Deputy Lynn reported Johnson was talking out of his head, and ran when the Deputy produced hand cuffs. Next, Johnson ran into Judge Executive Randy Dial's Office, screaming and causing public alarm, and then ran off.
Officers finally cornered Johnson as he was exiting the South side door of the Court House and took him into custody.
33 year old Jeffery Johnson is charged with Public Intoxication (Controlled Substance), Disorderly Conduct-2nd Degree, & Burglary-2nd Degree.
He was lodged in the Casey County Jail.
