Felon arrested for having gun for squirrel hunting

October 24, 2011

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) A squirrel hunting trip has landed a convicted felon back behind bars.

The Charleston Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/qS3iYe ) that 56-year-old Randy Allan Taylor of Tate Hollow was arrested and charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm on Friday.

Kanawha County Sheriff's Lt. Sean Crosier says Taylor attempted to flee from a deputy who went to his home to arrest him, but he soon gave up and pulled over. A shot gun and seven dead squirrels were found in Taylor's car.

Taylor was convicted of unlawful wounding in 1976 and domestic battery in 1999, so he is banned from having a firearm.

Taylor is being held in the South Central Regional Jail in lieu of $5,000 bond. It was unclear Monday if he had an attorney.
