MyersHENDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (1/16/19) — A Henderson man wanted on felony warrants was tasered after he allegedly ran from authorities Tuesday evening.

Henderson County Sheriff’s Office reported Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force had received information at 6:41 p.m. that R.C. Myers, 29, was at a South Alves Street location.
