Paducah police looking for man with multiple outstanding charges
PADUCAH, Ky. (KBSI) – Paducah police are looking for a man with multiple outstanding charges who is accused of running away from police.
Eric Ellington, 21, of Paducah, is charged in warrants with failure to appear for possession of marijuana, failure to appear for fourth-degree assault (domestic violence), failure to appear for first-degree fleeing or evading police (on foot), failure to appear for possession of marijuana and tampering with physical evidence, a bond violation for failing to pay court costs and failing to make scheduled appearances and a warrant charging him with first-degree bail jumping.
In September 2022, Paducah police say Ellington was involved in a shooting, which resulted in him being charged with first-degree wanton endangerment and second-degree stalking. Police say he failed to comply with the conditions of his release on bond, and a warrant for first-degree bail jumping was issued.
On April 6, 2023, Ellington was arrested for first-degree fleeing or evading (on foot), possession of marijuana and tampering with physical evidence. Police say he failed to appear in court for these charges and a bench warrant was issued.
On April 7, 2023, Ellington was served a warrant for fourth-degree assault (domestic violence), stemming from an incident that occurred in December 2022. Police say he failed to appear in court for this charge and a bench warrant was issued.
Anyone with information as to Ellington’s whereabouts is asked to call the Paducah Police Department at 270-444-8550. Information leading to an arrest or indictment may
