RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - A Berea man who was shot and killed after firing at a Madison County deputy had no violent offenses on his criminal record, but he could have been sent back to jail on a probation violation if caught.

Media outlets report that 51-year-old Daniel Pigg shot Deputy Kevin Crutcher during a traffic stop Wednesday afternoon. Crutcher was injured and returned gunfire, fatally striking Pigg.

Crutcher was treated at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital and was released Wednesday night.

Department of Corrections records show that Pigg was accused of absconding from probation. A warrant for Pigg’s arrest had been issued in November.

Pigg had been held in the Madison County jail at least five times between 2011 and 2014 for several nonviolent offenses, including possession of a controlled substance and receiving stolen property.
