MORGANTOWN, Ky. (WBKO) - Morgantown police are looking for Richard Smith after he fled from them Thursday night.
Chief Giles Taylor says they were looking for Smith because he had a felony warrant out on him.
He says an officer found Smith in a car and leaned into the car to talk to him, but Smith drove off causing the officer's weapon to fire.
Police say after driving a short distance, Smith ran from the car and they're still looking for him.
He is now facing charges of wanton endangerment of a police officer and fleeing and evading police.
The officer was put on administrative leave, which is standard procedure.
