He had been placed on the Sheriff’s Most Wanted list after a short pursuit along Brown Road off  KY  638 on July 31. Segraves had been sought previously for failing to appear in Laurel District Court on two bench warrants and, on July 23, he escaped custody while handcuffed in the back seat of Constable Tim May’s police cruiser. He cut off the handcuffs.

On July 31, Segraves was seen traveling along Brown Road, but when Deputy John Inman began following him, Segraves led the deputy on a short chase, fled into a relative’s house then out the back door into the woods.

According to the sheriff’s department, Segraves had a long legal history over the past several years.

Also arrested Friday evening was Shannon Johnson, 25, of Corbin. Johnson was charged with second-degree hindering prosecution or apprehension. Alesha Wagers, 29, of London, was also charged with second-degree hindering prosecution or apprehension.

All three were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
