LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
A stop for speeding resulted in a nine-charge arrest early Tuesday afternoon for a Kentucky State Police trooper based out of Post 11.
Around noon Tuesday, Tpr. Michelle Lunsford reported clocking a silver 2008 Nissan Altima going 83 miles per hour on Hal Rogers Parkway — a 55 miles per hour road in London.
Lunsford pulled over the Altima, but reports finding more than just an impatient driver.
“Upon approaching the vehicle, I observed the smell of marijuana,” reads Lunsford's report. “After speaking to the subject, he admitted that he had been smoking marijuana at his residence and took me to his residence to turn over the marijuana.”
According to Lunsford's report, the driver, Joseph G. Campos, 21 of Richmond, also admitted to using Adderall, a drug primarily used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.
Lunsford's report goes on to describe Campos' alleged state with “extremely slurred speech,” “glassy eyes,” and “unsteady on his feet.” The latter was allegedly so bad that Lunsford “grabbed [Campos] out of the line of traffic as he stepped into the roadway.”
Lunsford arrested Campos on the charges of speeding 26 miles per hour or greater than the speed limit; operating on a suspended or revoked operator's license; no moped operator's license; reckless driving; failure of non-owner operator to maintain required insurance or securities, first offense; failure to produce insurance card; buying or possessing drug paraphernalia; operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol, drugs, etc., .08 aggravated circumstances, second offense; and possession of marijuana.
