Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon reports that on January 28th at approximately 2:30 AM, his office investigated an incident that led to the arrest of a Boaz man on multiple charges.

The arrest came after a Graves County Deputy noticed a vehicle with no visible license plate making stops at several local businesses during the early morning hours in Mayfield. Some of these businesses were closed. This caused the deputy to investigate the circumstances. As the deputy’s patrol vehicle got behind this vehicle on Paris Road, the vehicle sped away. The deputy activated his emergency equipment to get the vehicle to stop. This caused the vehicle’s speed to increase. The vehicle eventually began traveling northbound on the State Route 121 Bypass. As officers of the Mayfield Police Department began arriving in the area, the deputy noticed sparks coming from the vehicle and then smoke. The vehicle then came to a stop and the operator fled on foot.

Two officers with the Mayfield Police Department were able to catch the subject on foot in the front lawn of Mayfield Elementary School. The subject was found to be in possession of plastic baggies containing methamphetamine, syringes, scales and other items. The subject was believed to be under the influence of methamphetamine at the time of the arrest. It was learned the subject was Calvin Bingham of Boaz.

Bingham is 22 years of age. It was determined that Mr Bingham had an active warrant for absconding by the Graves County Office of Probation and Parole. A computer inquiry also revealed that he had a suspended operator’s license. Mr Bingham was arrested on the warrant and for the following charges:
Reckless Driving
Fleeing or Evading Police in the First Degree
Operating a Motor Vehicle Under the Influence First Offense
Operating with a Suspended Operator’s License
Resisting Arrest
Possession of Controlled Substance in the First Degree
