Multiple DUI arrests over weekend



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.

The arrest occurred after Deputy Berry was dispatched to a complaint to observe for a dark-colored SUV south bound on I-75 with only one headlight and swerving all over the road.

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.

Following investigation, the subject was determined to be under the influence and was arrested. Brian Booth, 31, of Glasgow was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, failure of owner to maintain required insurance, and one headlight. He was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center. 

An East Bernstadt man was arrested Sunday morning on Ky. 312 after sheriff’s deputies and a KSP-Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer responded to a complaint that he had driven through someone’s yard.

When Deputies Tyler Morris, Mikey Ashurst and Shawn Boroviak, assisted by CVE Officer Mikey  Hamblin, located the vehicle, which was apparently out of gas. Deputies made contact with the driver of the maroon Chevrolet Blazer, who appeared to be under the influence.

Deputies conducted an investigation and determined the driver was under the influence. Bruce K. Hacker, 49, of North U.S. 25, East Bernstadt, was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence.  Hacker told deputies he had taken liquid oxycodone and smoked methamphetamine earlier. He was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.

An East Bernstadt man was arrested Sunday morning after the driver of the vehicle he was riding in was arrested for DUI.
