CPD: Columbia man charged with wanton endangerment

By Officer Adam Cravens, PIO
Columbia Police Department

The Columbia Police Department have charged a man with multiple felonies after receiving an "attempt to locate" call earlier in the evening on November 10, 2020.

The initial call was brought into KSP Post 15 concerning an 18 month old, said to be with her father, who would not return the child and was possibly under the influence.

First believed to be headed in the vicinity of South 61 and 768, the party was located by family members around Goodwill off Dohoney Trace. As family members called in to report that they had located the male subject and the child, the subject, according to witnesses, brandished a knife and drove behind Goodwill before fleeing on foot behind Whayne's Supply Store. The child was left in the vehicle.

The subject was soon located and apprehended as he was attempting to hide in brush along a fence row.

Richard Price, 33, of Columbia, is facing multiple felony charges including wanton endangerment, fleeing and evading, and tampering with physical evidence. Additionally, Price is facing misdemeanor drug charges and traffic violations.

Officers Trevor Foster and Adam Cravens were the responding officers. They were assisted on scene and with apprehension by multiple officers from the Kentucky State Police and The Adair County Sheriff's Office.

The 18-month-old was not harmed and was returned to the care of her mother.
