A Shelby County man who tried to run from police while being arrested Monday turned out to be wanted for crimes in four states. Charles Boswell, 30, of Shelbyville, was arrested during a traffic stop made by Kentucky State Police Trooper Hunter Martin. When the trooper asked for identification, KSP officials said, Boswell gave him a false name and date of birth. When Martin tried to place him under arrest, he tried to flee. After he was taken into custody, police discovered who he was and that he was a wanted fugitive in four states—Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Colorado. He was charged by Martin with obstructed vision or view, no license in possession, no operator’s license, giving a false name and address, theft of identity, fleeing or evading police, resisting arrest, third-degree escape and attempted third-degree escape. He is wanted in two Indiana counties for two separate felony charges, as well as two Colorado counties for a felony fleeing case and  a felony damage to property case. He is wanted in Kentucky for failing to appear in court for several traffic offenses.
