(JEFFERSONVILLE) - Shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday Indiana State troopers received information that 26-year-old Anthony Michael Atkinson of Jeffersonville was hiding out at a home in Jefferson Street in Scottsburg.

Atkinson was on the run from police because he was wanted on warrants in both Clark County, IN and Jefferson County, KY.

When troopers pulled up to the home they saw Atkinson playing basketball at the residence. When he saw the troopers he ran into the home. Troopers entered the home after him but Atkinson was able to escape out of a side door with trooper's right behind him.

Troopers, officers from the Scottsburg City Police and county deputies chased Atkinson on foot to South First Street in Scottsburg where he entered another residence uninvited.

When officers went into the home after him he fled upstairs and climbed out of an upstairs window where he then jumped off the roof of the home.

When he did this, an officer that had helped surrounded the home, took him into custody. No one was home at the residence when Atkinson entered.

Anthony Michael Atkinson was wanted in Clark County, IN for two counts of battery and criminal mischief. He was wanted out of Jefferson County, KY for manufacturing meth.

Anthony Michael Atkinson now faces the new charges of Resisting Law Enforcement and Residential Entry in Scott County.
