bowman arrest 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (1/13/14) — Madisonville Police observed suspicious vehicle activity Friday, Jan. 10 on Martin Luther King Boulevard.

According to the Madisonville Police report, upon Officer Justin Jones' arrival to the vehicle, he recognized the male driver and knew he had an active warrant for drug trafficking.
 
When Jones made contact with Ronald Lashawn Bowman, 23, he smelled a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle. He then proceeded to ask Bowman to step out of his vehicle and advised him he was under arrest for his active warrant, the report said.

Bowman stepped out of his vehicle and began to flee on foot from Jones. During the pursuit, Bowman stopped and took an aggressive stance with his fists clenched toward Jones. Jones then tackled Bowman and arrested him, the report said.

Jones then asked Bowman to perform a field sobriety test. Bowman admitted to Jones that he couldn’t because he was high. Bowman did submit both a blood and urine test, the report said.

Bowman was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol/drugs, trafficking in controlled substance, first degree, first offense (cocaine), fleeing or evading the police, first degree (on foot), and menacing. He is currently being lodged in the Hopkins County Jail.
