MAYFIELD, KY - Kentucky State Police are looking for a man who escaped as officers were trying to take him into custody by turning an officer's Taser against him.

On July 12 around 10 a.m., a Mayfield police officer and a probation officer were attempting to take Joshua Fox into custody for a probation violation when Fox became combative, KSP said. Police say Fox took the Mayfield officer's Taser and used it against him, allowing Fox to run away.

Police found the discarded Taser, but after several hours of searching they were unable to find Fox.

Fox is described as a 5’10” black male weighing 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black tank top and black shorts. Anyone with information regarding the location of Joshua Fox is asked to dial 911 or contact the Kentucky State Police at 270-856-3721.
