A game of hide and seek sent Wayne Curtis Coker to jail last week.

On Jan. 4 LaFollette Police Officer Tony Rucker responded to a disturbance call at 1308 Loop Road.  At the scene the victim advised that he had heard the dogs barking behind his apartment, and when he went to investigate Coker, 24, of 1180 Whitman Hollow Road, rushed in the residence stating he was hiding from the police.

Coker was soon arrested and charged with aggravated criminal trespassing.  He is scheduled to appear in court next Friday.
