Kevin Ross of Albany was detained on the morning of Friday, February 29th after a string of events leading to his arrest.  Deputy Tom Smith responded to a call at approximately 05:30 reporting a man lying in the middle of the road on Worley Hilltop Rd, Stearns.  In route Deputy Smith was diverted by a call reporting an attempted Breaking and Entering in Progress and report of shots fired on the scene. 

Residents off Hwy 92 West reported that someone attempted to enter their home through the front door.  The resident made noise and fired shots in the air to scare off the subject.  Moments earlier an intruder had attempted to enter a residence on Farm Ridge Rd. While Deputy Smith searched the area, a passerby informed him that someone was walking down the road on Hwy 92 West.  Deputy Smith attempted to stop Kevin Ross several times for questioning.  Ross was identified by the resident as the person who attempted to break into their home.  When Ross refused to stop, Deputy Smith requested back up.  As soon as Deputy Chris King arrived Ross became violent and aggressively attacked Deputy Smith.  His actions as well as several comments made by Ross indicated that he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.  Ross is also believed to be the individual identified as lying in the road on Worley Hilltop earlier.  Deputy King assisted Deputy Smith in subduing Ross.  Deputies then contacted EMS to administer to injuries incurred while subduing Ross.  He was transported to the hospital for treatment and then released for transportation to the McCreary County Detention Center.  Ross has thus far been charged with two counts of Assault of a Police Officer, 2nd degree, two counts of Burglary, 2nd degree, Resisting Arrest, Disorderly Conduct and Terroristic Threatening.
