Hit and run leads to arrest

State Journal staff report Published:

A hit-and-run car accident early Sunday afternoon resulted in the arrest of a Frankfort man who had numerous arrest warrants from multiple counties in Kentucky and Ohio.

Simyon Minion, 30, rear-ended a rented 2012 Chevrolet Malibu into a 2010 Nissan in the right hand turn lane from Wilkinson Boulevard onto Schenkel Lane and then drove away.

Frankfort Police Officer Mitchell Blum observed the crash, turned on his emergency lights and sirens and attempted to pull Minion over, according to a Frankfort Police press release.

Minion turned onto Bypass Plaza Drive, stopped in the parking lot of Clay Villa Apartments and started running on foot, according to the release.

Blum apprehended him after a short foot pursuit.

“Initially the guy didn’t even want to give him his name,” Maj. Fred Deaton said.

No one in the Nissan was injured, Deaton said.

Minion was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, operating a motor vehicle on a suspended or revoked operator’s license, fleeing or evading police on foot and in a motor vehicle, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

His previous pending charges in Franklin County include two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, two counts of being a persistent felony offender and two counts of contempt of court.

He also is charged with failure to maintain insurance in Scott County and three counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs from Wood County, Ohio.

Minion is currently lodged in Franklin County Regional Jail.
