Homeless Shelter director arrested for PI

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

The director of the Christian Shelter for the Homeless found himself behind bars Friday night after London Police received a complaint he was intoxicated and had flashed a pistol threateningly at a resident of the shelter.

Authorities said Lance Marzula, 39, of 220 East 4th St., was arrested Friday night for alcohol intoxication after police received a complaint from a resident of the Christian Center for the Homeless stating Marzula allegedly came down to the shelter from his upstairs residence drunk, shoved him and threatened to kill him.

Arriving on scene, Officer Rick Cloyd was told Marzula had flashed a pistol at a resident of the homeless shelter.  Marzula told Cloyd it was only a pellet gun, however after further investigation, Cloyd was unable to locate a pistol of any kind.

Cloyd administered a Portable Breath Test (PBT) and Marzula tested .166.  Cloyd also noticed a strong odor of alcohol on Marzula’s breath and noted on the citation Marzula was distressed about the loss of a loved one.

Marzula was arrested for alcohol intoxication in a public place, first and second offense, and was lodged in the Laurel County Correctional Center at 9:42 p.m. Friday night and was released early Saturday morning.

Marzula is scheduled for arraignment of March 3 in Laurel District Court.
