LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– A man is in jail Tuesday morning accused of attacking an officer while trying to escape.

It happened just after 5:30 p.m. Monday at Kentucky One Health Saint Joseph Hospital, off Harrodsburg Road.

Police say Paul Bond III was getting medical treatment, when he tried to get away from an officer.

When officers caught up to Bond, he allegedly threatened them, and kicked one officer in the face.

This came after he was arrested about three hours earlier for receiving stolen property.

Bond is in the Fayette County Detention Center facing several charges, including escape, resisting arrest, and assault.
