Man charged in scuffle with police indicted

Greenup County Indictments

GREENUP — A man who scuffled with a Kentucky State Police trooper and a Greenup County sheriff’s deputy at a traffic safety checkpoint was indicted recently by a Greenup County grand jury.

Lonnie Horsley, 54, of Garrison, was charged with disarming a peace officer and third-degree assault, both Class D felonies, and carrying a concealed deadly weapon, resisting arrest and alcohol intoxication, all misdemeanors.

Horsley was charged in connection with an incident that occurred Sept. 20 as the officers were working a checkpoint on Ky. 784, Schultz Road.

According to Greenup County Sheriff Keith Cooper, as KSP Trooper Nathan Carter approached the driver of a vehicle that was stopped at the checkpoint, Deputy Cody Fuller saw the passenger, later identified as Horsley, pull a pistol out from underneath the car seat.

Fuller moved to take the gun away from Horsley and a struggle ensued, during which Horsley allegedly tried to gain control of Fuller’s duty weapon, Cooper said.

Horsley — listed in jail records as being 5 feet 4 inches tall and 325 pounds — scuffled with both Fuller and Carter, but the two offers were eventually able to secure the scene and restrain the suspect, the sheriff said.

The driver of the vehicle, a 37-year-old man from Garrison, was charged with driving under the influence, no insurance and other traffic-related offenses.

A grand jury indictment is a formal accusation of a crime and does not establish guilt.

Others named in recent true bills returned by the grand jury were:

‰Aaron J. Pack, 24, of Wheelersburg, and Benny R. Kilgore, 40, of Franklin Furnace, both charged with first-degree robbery and second-degree persistent felony offender. The two were charged in a Sept. 10 holdup at the Lloyd BP.

‰Sheri L. Bray, 40, of South Shore, charged with cultivating marijuana, second-degree unlawful transaction with a minor and unlawfully permitting a minor to possess a handgun.

‰Robert L. Cochran, 28, of Ironton, charged with receiving stolen property.

‰Joshua A. Farmer, 29, of Ironton, charged with theft by failure to make required disposition of property.

‰Tyrell L. Felton, 31, of Franklin Furnace, charged with first-degree bail-jumping.

‰James F. Hay Jr., 38, and James F. Hay Sr., 66, both of Argillite, both charged with trafficking in marijuana.

‰Jack W. Withrow, 42, of Raceland, charged with first-degree drug possession.

‰James M. Little Jr., 33, of Greenup, charged with first-degree promoting contraband, first-degree drug possession, public intoxication and possession of a controlled substance in an improper container.

‰John H. Gullett Jr., 33, of Greenup, charged with second-degree escape.

‰ Jerad D. Snead, 31, of Ironton, charged with first-degree drug trafficking.

‰Shawna M. McReynolds, 25, of Greenup, charged with theft and second-degree persistent felony offender.

‰Sandra M. Jacobs, 32, of Flatwoods; Melissa K. Meade, 40, of Wurtland; Connie Sue Preston, 39, of Flatwoods; Tommie R. Preston, 36, of Flatwoods; Sherry Christian, 38, of Greenup; and Brandy E. Riley, 31, of Flatwoods, all charged with welfare fraud.
