MURRAY, KY - A Murray man and woman face charges after a traffic stop Saturday afternoon in Graves County.

According to Kentucky State Police, a trooper stopped a car for a traffic violation on KY 94, west of Tri-City. During the traffic stop, the driver, 40-year-old Demetrick Rose of Murray, got out of the car and fled into a field, leaving two juveniles, ages 11 and 3, in the car. The trooper pursued Rose into the field but terminated his pursuit and returned to the car to ensure the safety of the children. They were later released to their mother.

Rose was found later that night at a house on Butterworth Road in Calloway County. He was arrested on multiple charges, including giving an officer a false name or address, DUI second offense, resisting arrest, theft of identity, wanton endangerment, abandonment of a minor and fleeing or evading police. Three probation violation warrants were also served on Rose.

Also arrested at the home was 40-year-old Shanna Rose of Murray. She's charged with hindering prosecution or apprehension, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.
