Alleged deputy dragger arrested


A Versailles man wanted for allegedly dragging an Anderson County deputy from a stolen truck Oct. 18 and a variety of other charges was arrested Wednesday morning in a shed off Pinckard Pike.

Versailles Police Lt. Michael Fortney said Zackery T. Jones, 33, of 55 Berger Road, was found in the loft of an outbuilding of a Pinckard Pike residence after an early morning call about a possible burglary at a nearby farm.

Fortney said Jones went peaceably, but on the way to the Woodford County Detention Center, he slipped his handcuffed wrists under his feet and kicked out a back side window of a cruiser.

Fortney said in addition to the Anderson County charges, Jones is a suspect in several local burglaries and had seven outstanding warrants in Woodford County and four from Fayette County.

Woodford Jailer Michele Rankin said Jones also faces a 1st degree wanton endangerment charge for allegedly endangering trick or treaters Tuesday while driving twice the speed limit in a 25 mph zone.

After the incident in the cruiser, Jones was charged with 3rd degree assault of a police or probation officer, 1st degree criminal mischief, 2nd degree escape and resisting arrest.

He’s being held in the Woodford Detention Center.
