HUNTINGTON — A Lincoln County man gave deputies the name of a relative after being taken into custody following a police pursuit Monday in Huntington, according to Cabell County Sheriff Chuck Zerkle.
Timothy Shain Baker, 32, of Lincoln County, was charged with giving false information and will face additional charges, Zerkle said.
“He has apparently done this type of thing before,” Zerkle said.
Baker was one of three people charged in connection with a police pursuit that ended with the vehicle crashing into a home on Park Street. The other two people charged were Anthony McCoy, 33, and Ashley Adkins, 32, both from Lincoln County. All were facing various felony and misdemeanor charges, Zerkle said.
Zerkle said after taking Baker’s fingerprints, officers eventually figured out that he had given them a name that was not his own.
Baker has an extensive criminal background that includes a May 2017 incident in which he was charged with kidnapping, indecent exposure, battery and assault, according to criminal complaints filed in Cabell County Magistrate Court.
In that case it was alleged that Baker held a woman and her son against their will in Huntington. However, the Cabell County prosecution failed to ask the witness to identify Baker during her testimony, which caused the kidnapping charges to be dismissed.
