Intoxicated driver indicted for head-on collision



This indictment stems from an incident in which Doan allegedly possessed methamphetamine and items commonly used for the ingestion and/or distribution of illegal controlled substances on Oct. 13. Doan was also driving without a license and driving under the influence of intoxicants at the time. This is Doan’s third offense of DUI.

The persistent felony offender charge comes from Doan’s prior conviction in Laurel County for two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance in 2007. Doan received six years on each count, which ran concurrently — or at the same time — on Dec. 21, 2007.

• Elvis Proffitt, 36, of 235 Sowder Lane and 38-year-old Elbert McFadden of 224 Falls St., both of London, were indicted for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance on Nov. 4. Both sold less than two grams of methamphetamine to a cooperating witness for the London Police Department. Proffitt is additionally charged with third-degree possession of a controlled substance for having a quantity of Xanax in his possession on the same date.

Proffitt has three prior felony convictions including criminal possession of a forged instrument in Knox County in 2011, which ran at the same time as a Laurel County case for the same charge, giving him a total of 5 and a half years in prison. Proffitt had already been probated for one year for a theft by deception charge in Pulaski County in 1996.

• Layton McQueen, 30, of 115 Carson Dr. in East Bernstadt, was named in a two-count indictment for first-degree possession of a controlled substance and being a second-degree persistent felony offender stemming from an Aug. 30 incident in which he had methamphetamine.

McQueen had a prior felony for first-degree possession of a controlled substance in Laurel County in 2010, for which he received a three-year sentence.

Another indictment returned on Friday was against 41-year-old Brooks Wagers of 2009 Jones Dr. in London. Wagers is charged with first-degree sexual abuse, first-degree sodomy, and incest. The sexual abuse allegedly occurred during November 2011, while the other two incidents took place in February of this year with a 14-year-old.

An indictment is an accusation only and does not imply guilt or innocence.
