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 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.
