In an update to an earlier story…


Kenneth Vaughn Sims, the 61-year-old who was on the run from authorities, was taken into custody in a Spring Hill movie theater parking lot.

Sims was wanted by both the Marshall and Maury County Sheriff’s departments for multiple aggravated assaults with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, and auto thefts.

In Marshall County, the Lynnville man was accused of striking another man in the head with a hatchet. That man was injured, but his injuries are not considered life-threatening.

According to an arrest affidavit out of Maury County, Sims pulled a gun on a man, handcuffed him, and forced him into the passenger seat of the man’s truck. That man somehow escaped from Sims who one day later.

Officers found an empty holster on Sim’s side. When asked about weapons the 61-year-old told officers his stuff was at his house.

In Maury County, Sims is charged with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, carjacking, and aggravated assault. He’s charged with similar crimes in Marshall.
