A judge in Mayfield has sent a grand jury the case against a man charged with trying to run down state troopers with a farm tractor.

According to The Paducah Sun, the court found probable cause on Wednesday in the case against 45-year-old Michael Rose. He is charged with criminal attempt to murder police officers.

Police were called Dec. 11 by a woman who said Rose was threatening to destroy vehicles at her home with a tractor. Troopers pursued the tractor into a field where they said Rose came at their cars and then lowered the front end loader and drove toward them when they got out of their vehicles to arrest him. They shot out a tire on the tractor and arrested Rose.
