Multiple charges filed against Lily drunk driver

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — In a bizarre series of events, a Lily man now faces multiple legal charges that started when he took a vehicle without the owner’s permission.

David W. Wagoner, 31, of Hopkins Cemetery Road, is charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle while under the influence, possession of an open alcoholic beverage in a motor vehicle, and several failure to appear warrants on charges of alcohol intoxication, assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, criminal mischief, terroristic threatening, and fourth-degree assault.

Wagoner’s most recent troubles began when Laurel County Sheriff’s officials received a complaint that Wagoner had taken a blue Ford Explorer without the permission of the owner at a residence on Wyatt Road, four miles south of London, around 6:40 p.m. Friday.

When Laurel Sheriff’s Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter and Deputy Robbie Grimes arrived at the scene, they spotted the vehicle traveling down the roadway. The vehicle came to a stop and the driver--Wagoner--got out without putting it in park, causing the vehicle to roll and nearly throw Wagoner down.

When officers approached, Wagoner appeared to be under the influence. Wagoner told the officers he was test driving the vehicle, which they learned was not true. Wagoner was arrested and taken to the Laurel Detention Center.

Wagoner is scheduled to appear in Laurel District Court on Friday, Sept. 21.  He is held under a cash bond on three different charges, totaling $884.
