LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Jefferson County Deputies serve 80,000 court orders a year. Serving warrants is one of the most dangerous parts of the job. Tuesday the serving of a warrant at a man's home led to his death.
Outside of HD Supply, located at 4602 Roofing Road, authorities said the man got out of his
truck and came at the deputies with a knife.
"At that point shots were fired. The man is deceased at the scene," Lt. Cool. Carl Yates with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said.
The incident began when officers attempted to serve the man a felony warrant out of Trimble County for flagrant failure to pay support. Authorities said the man claimed he was not the person he was looking for and asked to go inside to get his identification. Instead he got into a truck and fled to the business.
"The majority of the time, it is a very peaceful exchange, a person is arrested and goes peacefully with the deputy. This one didn't turn out that way," Yates explained.
"One thing, you never know the subject you're serving a warrant on. You never know what's going on in his mind," Spencer County Sheriff Buddy Stump said.
Sheriff Stump said he's constantly thinking about his deputies on warrant duty because you never know who may come to the door.
"He might have committed another crime that day or the day before that you're not even aware of and maybe he thinks you're coming to get him on that crime which was more serious than the warrant was you had," Stump explained.
Just last week four officers in Indianapolis were hurt while also serving a warrant. Stump said while serving a warrant, he's watching like a hawk, especially a person's eyes.
"Watch his facial expressions, watch what's getting ready to happen and be prepared for that," he said.
