HINDMAN, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police in eastern Kentucky have arrested a man whom probation officers were searching for when one of them was wounded.

Knott County sheriff's deputies located Rocky Wicker Jr. at a residence in the Mousie community Tuesday and chased him on foot to a creek, where police said he eventually surrendered.

Police said earlier that Wicker's father, 56-year-old Rocky Wicker Sr., was charged with attempted murder of a police officer and wanton endangerment after allegedly opening fire as probation officers tried to serve a warrant for the younger Wicker on Monday.

The younger Wicker was charged with first-degree fleeing or evading police, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and two counts of handgun possession by a felon. He was also charged with pending warrants, including probation violation, and for pending charges in Indiana.
