A 94-year-old Paris man told police he was confronted in his house on Wednesday by a masked man who demanded that he give him money. The man told officers he reached into a desk and grabbed a knife, and the intruder fled. The case remains under investigation.
Also Wednesday, police arrested Adrian Kyle Lane, 25, of Paris after a traffic stop in the 1600 block of East Sherman Street for what was described as a minor traffic violation. An officer said Lane was observed throwing an item through the passenger window.
Lane was arrested when he produced a baggie of marijuana, and a charge of felon in possession of a firearm was filed against him when the item thrown out of the vehicle was determined to be a pistol.
Also, six other people were charged with Class C misdemeanors, two with parole violation warrants, two with possession of less than two ounces of marijuana, one with burglary of a vehicle, one for driving while intoxicated, and one with evading arrest.
Police responded Wednesday to 83 calls for service and arrested 11 people.
