A McKenzie man was arrested Friday afternoon by the Henry County Sheriff’s Department for crimes of sexual misconduct.

Michael S. Knobloch, 56, 1794 Hwy. 22 northwest of McKenzie, was charged with two counts of aggravated sexual battery.

An arrest report indicated that Knobloch was taken into custody by Sheriff’s Sgt. Clyde Sulcer at 2:30 p.m. at 15000 Highland Drive in McKenzie.

His bond was set at $200,000 and he is scheduled to appear Tuesday in Henry County General Sessions Court.

In an unrelated incident, a Paris man was arrested early Saturday and charged with being a fugitive from justice with active warrants from Calloway County, Ky.

Laquan D. McFerren, 27, 502 Lankford Road, was pulled over on East Blythe Street by Henry County Sheriff’s Cpl. Dalton Watson for violation of a traffic control device when Calloway County confirmed to the sheriff’s department that he was wanted for a failure to appear charge, according to a report by Watson.

This warrant dates back to November 2020 when McFerren was arrested in Murray by the Murray Police Department and charged with trafficking marijuana (8 ounces to 5 pounds), possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and failure to give or giving an improper signal. He was also wanted in Calloway County for bail jumping.

Watson then detained McFerren at 12:30 a.m. and booked him into the Henry County jail, where he was given a bond set at $2,500. He is set to appear Tuesday in General Sessions Court.
