DRY RIDGE, Ky. -- Kentucky State Police arrested a man who escaped from a halfway home and charged him with several drug and weapon charges, they announced Tuesday.

Daryl McIntosh, 42, escaped from Dismas Charities in Louisville, a halfway home for inmates being released from state and federal incarceration so they can learn skills and motivation to re-enter society, according to troopers.

When a trooper pulled over a minivan driven by McIntosh in Grant County at about 2:30 p.m. Monday, McIntosh got out and ran away, according to Kentucky State Police. The trooper arrested McIntosh after a short chase.

McIntosh was charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, resisting arrest, fleeing or evading police and escape.

He was being held at the Grant County Jail.
