Midway man faces 5 years in prison for standoff with police

A 39-year-old Midway man faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to eight counts of first-degree wanton endangerment in Woodford Circuit Court Nov. 4. The felony charges against Scott E. Hayes stem from his two-hour standoff with Versailles Police at his West Higgins Street home Dec. 12, 2019.

Woodford Circuit Judge Jeremy Mattox scheduled Hayes to return for sentencing Dec. 2, after accepting his guilty plea to the wanton endangerment charges and a misdemeanor charge of possession of a police radio.

Hayes waved a loaded gun in the direction of police officers and emergency medical services workers, creating a substantial danger of death or serious injury, according to an indictment returned by a Woodford County grand jury.
