Pulaski deputies use dogs, helicopter to track a man down

Dogs and a helicopter were brought in to track down a man who fled from sheriff's deputies in Pulaski County on Monday.

Deputies responding to a report of a domestic dispute at a home on Lisa Bell Lane at 10 a.m. found Brandon M. Myers, 27, of Eubank, who was wanted on a felony arrest warrant. While the deputies were dealing with the domestic dispute, Myers ran from the scene and into a wooded area, where he was able to evade deputies for about five hours, according to a news release from the Pulaski County sheriff's office.

During the situation, Myers made his way to Ky. 1247, Mayfield Road, Absher Road and Hinkle Road. Citizens helped keep officers informed of his location, the release stated.

Myers was captured on Surber Lane and charged with first-degree wanton endangerment. An arrest warrant for Myers stated that on June 2, he put a gun in the face of another male and threatened to kill him.

He was also charged with failure to appear, stemming from an arrest warrant out of Lincoln County.

He was taken to the Pulaski County Detention Center.
