Man arrested on assault charges in Paducah
PADUCAH – Police say a McCracken County man was arrested on multiple charges, including fourth degree assault and assault on a police officer, Wednesday morning at a local convenience store.
Officers say 41-year-old Jeremy Case was arrested after police received three separate calls about him regarding an assault in the parking lot of the Five Star on H.C. Mathis Drive and a disturbance inside the store. Police say when they responded to the first two calls, Case’s vehicle had left the store parking lot by the time they got there. The third time, he was inside the store.
The Paducah Police Department says when an officer responded to the third call, he found Case inside the Five Star. When the officer tried to talk with Case, he was allegedly too intoxicated to carry on a conversation. When the officer went to arrest Case, the police department says Case jerked away and began fighting the officer.
A second officer arrived at the store to help subdue Case, and the police department says the two were eventually able to hold him down until a third officer arrived and was able to handcuff him.
Case was arrested on charges of fourth degree assault, third degree assault of a police officer, public intoxication by a controlled substance, third degree criminal mischief, resisting arrest and first degree disorderly conduct. He was jailed in the McCracken County Regional Jail.
Police say the victim of the assault was taken to Baptist Health Paducah.
