Drunk man braves cold

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — The sub-zero temperatures earlier this week didn’t phase a man who was found walking along Helvetia Road.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputies Daniel Grigsby and Larry Parrott, Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter, and Sheriff John Root responded to a complaint on Helvetia Road, three miles north of London, just before 8 p.m. Monday night. A man, 42-year-old James E. Johnson of Helvetia Road was found walking along the road in the freezing cold. Sheriff’s officials determined Johnson was under the influence and placed him under arrest.

Johnson, however, became combative with the officers during the arrest process and struggled briefly with deputies before being taken into custody. He was charged with alcohol intoxication, second-degree disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest and taken to the Laurel County Detention Center.
