LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

Complaints of a vehicle missing a headlight and swerving all over the road on Interstate 75 led to a Glasgow man being arrested Saturday morning.

Deputy Berry located the vehicle and observed the vehicle's erratic movements. He conducted a traffic stop of the blue Mercury Mountaineer on Ky. 770, 13 miles south of London. Upon contact with the driver, Berry noted the odor of alcoholic beverages and conducted an investigation. The driver stated he had not been drinking.
