Man arrested in traffic stop

Wanted in four counties

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A child riding in a car without any type of restraint device in place resulted in a Keavy man’s arrest on Monday.

But the failure to use a child restraint device was the tip of the iceberg that landed 39-year-old William Faris in jail for numerous offenses and warrants from four different counties.

Faris was driving along Foley Road, 11 miles south of London, around 4:16 p.m. when Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Parrott noticed a child in the vehicle that was not in a child restraint device. Parrott pulled the car over and discovered Faris was driving on a suspended operator’s license. Further investigation revealed Faris was wanted on 11 different charges in four different counties.

Parrott then arrested Faris, charging him with a Rockcastle County bench warrant for reckless driving and six different bench warrants from Laurel County including failure to wear seat belts, failure to use child restraint devices in a vehicle, failure to produce an insurance card, operating a pressure vehicle without a certificate of inspection, and contempt of court. Faris was also wanted in Knox County on three outstanding warrants for theft by deception, operating on a suspended or revoked operator’s license, and contempt of court. In Whitley County, Faris was wanted for failing to appear in court on charges of failure to maintain required insurance.

Faris was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center. He is set for a pretrial hearing in Laurel District Court on February 10.
