BOWEN - A Lincoln County man was barricaded in his residence this morning in a standoff with law enforcement officers.
An ambulance left the area late this morning with a patient inside, but reports that it was the suspect could not be confirmed by press time.
Jimmy Dale Blakey, 29, 2825 Bowen Road, evaded the sheriff's office during a chase which began about 11 p.m. Monday on Harris Creek Road, said Kentucky State Police spokesman Chris Lanham. Blakey was in a vehicle that had been reported stolen.
Lanham said Blakey drove the vehicle into a field and got stuck in the mud, then fled on foot. The deputy in pursuit lost him; but at 4 a.m., a caller to 911 reported seeing Blakey at the Bowen Road trailer and the state police, also investigating the stolen vehicle, were summoned.
