Bench warrant served

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

A walk along the rural Laurel County roads in frigid temperatures landed a Laurel man in a warmer environment, although one which few prefer.

Donald Johnson, 25, of Slate Lick Road in London, was spotted by Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Mikey Ashurst at 11:14 p.m. Tuesday as he walked along Ky. 490, five miles north of London. Due to the low temperatures in the area and the current temperature of 7 degrees at the time, Ashurst stopped to check on the man’s well-being. After talking with Johnson, Ashurst determined that Johnson was wanted on a Laurel County bench warrant for public intoxication of controlled substances.

Johnson was taken to the Laurel County Detention Center after his arrest.
