The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office says deputies worked with US Marshals to arrest a federal fugitive. Police went to an area off Liberty Circle Road after learning where 49 year old Eddie Allen Simpson was located. Deputies spotted Simpson’s vehicle abandoned at the scene. The Department’s K-9 “Edge” was used to search a nearby wooded area. They found Simpson lying in a ditch. After a short struggle Simpson was arrested. Simpson faces charges of fleeing or evading police on foot, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and menacing. He was also charged on a Laurel County warrant for fleeing or evading police on a motorcycle and reckless driving. US Marshals also wanted Simpson on federal charges of selling amphetamine. He was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
