LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Robbie Grimes and Deputy Shane Rice investigated a gray Isuzu that was apparently stopped in the middle of the road on Rita Lane, nine miles south of London, in southern Laurel County on Tuesday, Dec. 31 at 3:03 p.m.

A check on the driver revealed he was obviously under the influence, had a suspended operator’s license, and no insurance. He was stopped in the middle of the road, obstructing the flow of traffic.

William D. Wolfe, 30, of Manchester, Ky., was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs; operating on a suspended or revoked operator’s license; no insurance; improper parking on the traveled portion of the roadway; no seat belt in use; and numerous other traffic offenses.

A passenger in the vehicle — Nathaniel Cody, 23, of Rita Lane, Corbin — was cited to Laurel District Court for permitting an unlicensed driver to operate a motor vehicle, and no seat belt usage.

Assisting in the investigation was Deputy  Larry Parrott, Capt. Rodney Van Zant, and Detective Jason Back. Other charges are pending a continuing investigation by Detective Jason Back.
