Ballew then fled the scene in a vehicle driven by a relative, the report stated. As a result of that incident, a warrant was issued July 24, 2012, charging him with first-degree wanton endangerment and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
On Aug. 2, RPD bike patrol officers spotted Ballew sitting on the front porch of his residence on East Main Street. The officers approached Ballew to apprehend him, but he fled through the residence and escaped out the back.
Another warrant was issued against Ballew on charges of second-degree fleeing and evading police, the report said.
On Aug. 4, a patrol officer investigating suspicious activity in the 200 block of North Second Street encountered an occupied vehicle parked in a driveway. A passenger in the vehicle, later identified as Ballew, provided a false identity to the officer by using the name of a relative.
While the officer was attempting to gain additional information on Ballew from another officer, he exited the vehicle and fled on foot, escaping the police after a foot chase. As a result, a third warrant was issued charging him with second-degree fleeing or evading police and theft of identity of another, the report stated.
All of these warrants, as well as a Garrard County warrant for contempt of court, were served on Ballew at the detention center where he remained Thursday afternoon, according to the jail’s online records.
