Bystanders tell police a Paris man purposely drove into a porch, pinning another man

paris police carA Paris man told police that his accelerator became stuck, causing him to crash into a residence shortly before 9 p.m. Friday in the 500 block of Bonham Street, accidentally pinning a man between the vehicle and a porch.

Several witnesses told officers it was no accident.

They said 54-year-old Mickey Lee Bates and another man were quarreling, and Bates intentionally drove the vehicle into the front porch, where the man was sitting with a 66-year-old man.

The witnesses said Bates then backed off of the porch, then accelerated again and struck the porch a second time, pinning the 66-year-old man.

The victim was taken by ambulance to Paris Regional Medical Center, where he refused medical treatment.

Bates, whose address is listed in sheriff’s department records as 965 E. Polk St., was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Skunk killed in Morningside Addition was rabid, police chief says

Paris Police Chief Bob Hundley has cautioned residents living in the Morningside residential subdivision to make sure their pets have been vaccinated for rabies.

Police Chief Bob Hundley

Hundley sent a letter to residents living within one-fourth mile of the 400 block of SE 42nd Street, where several dogs got into a fight with a skunk several weeks ago, injuring it. A homeowner killed the skunk.

The skunk was sent to a lab for analysis and the skunk returned positive for carrying the rabies virus. The dogs are being confined in accordance with state law,” the police chief wrote.

Skunks are known carriers of rabies and it is not unusual for one to come back positive for the virus when tested, Hundley noted.

“We don’t believe that this particular incident is cause for alarm, but do consider the event and good time to remind our citizens that skunks are normally nocturnal animals, not seen during daylight hours, that is not unusual for them to carry the virus and to make sure their pets are vaccinated for rabies,” the chief said.

The letter:

Skunks and other wild animals are known to carry the rabies virus.  There has not been an increase of skunks in your neighborhood, but we wanted to take a minute of your time to let you know of an incident that took place recently.

In  the 400 block of SE 42nd, several dogs fought with a skunk and inured it, and the skunk was killed by the homeowner.  The skunk was sent to a lab for analysis and the skunk returned positive for carrying the rabies virus.  This is not unusual for a skunk. The dogs are being confined in accordance with state law.

We are sending this notice out just to raise awareness of this incident and of the fact that skunks are known to carry the rabies virus.

If any of your pets have encountered a skunk in the last week or so, you may want to have the animal checked.

Again, this letter is just to raise your awareness and be cautious if you see a skunk during the daytime hours, and as a reminder to always keep your pets current on their rabies vaccination.
