Woman arrested after fleeing from police serving warrant

Tribune staff reports

Police attempting to serve a parole warrant on a Seymour man arrested that man and a woman, who was tased after fleeing on foot.

Seymour police reported that Trina D. Barrett, 39, of Campbellsburg, Kentucky, ignored several commands to stop after fleeing from police Sunday in an alley in the area of 10th and Park streets in Seymour.

Barrett fled south, running across Ninth Street, as police were arresting Bryon Dale Robinson, 56, of Seymour on a parole warrant.

Cpl. Jason Alberring chased Barrett east through some backyards and eventually used a taser to try to stop her, but it didn’t work.

Shortly after that, however, Barrett tripped, fell to the ground and was arrested.

While talking with her, police were able to determine Barrett was wanted on a Jackson Circuit Court warrant for failure to appear for a probation revocation hearing. That hearing was for a 2013 conviction for counterfeiting.

After the foot pursuit, Barrett faces new charges of resisting law enforcement, possession of a controlled substance and assisting a criminal.

Before being taken to the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown, Barrett was taken to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour for treatment of an abrasion she suffered during her fall. She was being held without bond on the new charges.

Robinson was booked into the jail and was being held without bond.

City officers Chris McCoy, Gilbert Carpenter and Devin Cornwell assisted with the investigation.
