Woman attempts to flee from police after being arrested

PIKEVILLE, Ky. –  A Pike County woman is in jail after trying to escape from police after being arrested.  Pikeville Police officers encountered 26 year old Jerrica Skeens at a home on Wolford Street while conducting an investigation late Tuesday night.  After giving several false names to an officer, it was discovered that she was wanted out of Virginia. Skeens was arrested and taken to the Pike County Detention Center, where she complained of her handcuffs being too tight. After the officer loosened one handcuff just inside the door of the jail, she pulled her hand free and attempted to flee. Skeens was detained, re-handcuffed and then lodged in the jail. She is now facing additional charges of resisting arrest and 3rd degree escape.
