Traffic stop results in DUI

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Two Annville men were parked in the middle of a roadway around 6 p.m. Sunday when law enforcement officials responded to the scene.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Steve Hoskins found 56-year-old Dwight Riley of Hwy. 3630 and 54-year-old Lillia D. Vaughn of Hellard Road, both in Annville, slumped over inside a red Toyota Corolla on McWhorter Victory Road when he answered a 9-1-1 call about the situation. Although Riley reportedly had his foot on the brake, the car was still in gear at the time Hoskins arrived.

Riley exhibited bloodshot eyes and was unsteady on his feet during the initial questioning, and he was placed under arrest for operating a motor vehicle under the influence, second offense of driving on a DUI-suspended license, possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle, and failure to wear seat belts. Vaughn was also arrested at the scene, charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place.

Deputy and Public Affairs Officer Gilbert Acciardo said the car parked in the middle of the road was observed and called in by a passerby on the country road where numerous residents reside. While officials could not estimate the ‘what if’s’ of the situation, Acciardo said the parked car posed a danger to other motorists who travel that roadway.

Riley is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Laurel District Court on Tuesday, March 19 on his charges. He was arraigned Monday and placed on a $2,500 cash bond with the condition of home incarceration.

Vaughn was released from jail eight hours later. He was scheduled for an arraignment hearing on April 1.
