LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A man is in custody after a 5-hour manhunt Sunday afternoon.

Guy House was arrested and charged with 1st degree fleeing and evading, resisting arrest, and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, according to Lexington police.

Any additional charges listed on the jail website are from outstanding warrants.

Lexington police said officers observed a man with known warrants shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday near Ramada Inn on North Broadway.

When the officers attempted to make contact with him, the man fled into a wooded area near Interstate 75 and North Broadway with a firearm.

Members of the Lexington Emergency Response Unit and Crisis Negotiations Unit responded and were able to negotiate with the individual. The man turned himself in without incident.

The suspect surrendered to police after a 5-hour manhunt. 

Police told LEX 18 they will likely charge the man for felon's possession of a handgun and fleeing and evading the police. They have not yet released his name.
