An incident in Kanawha County has caused James Douglas "Skippy" Hall, 36, to be incarcerated in Central Regional Jail for attempted murder.|
Hall, whose residence is given as Cannelton, was just indicated for daytime burglary by a Calhoun Grand Jury, reportedly for the theft of a firearm.
Hall is also charged by State Police with fleeing, speeding, reckless driving, and DUI 2nd offense in Kanawha County.
Hall allegedly tried, not once, but twice, to run over a
State Police officer Cpl. J. D. Perry in December, after the officer stopped Hall on a traffic violation.
The incident happened in Rand, where Hall was clocked at driving nearly 100 miles per hour on US 60. He was later caught in Nicholas County.
