CATLETTSBURG The Ashland Community and Economic Development Director has pleaded guilty to failure to yield charge, due to insufficient evidence for DUI.

Chris Pullem was charged Dec. 14 with a DUI and other traffic violations by Kentucky State Police. On Wednesday, court records show Pullem pleaded guilty to failure to yield in Boyd County District Court.

A special prosecutor brought in from Pike County wrote the following in the reasons for amending the charge: 

“Commonwealth amends DUI 1st to failure to yield due in the blood test results being less than .08.” The filing states a DUI could not be proven.

Judge Scott T. Reese sentenced Pullem to pay a $50 fine for the failure to yield and attend traffic school.

A charge of careless driving was also dropped, court records show.
