A traffic stop on Horse Creek led to a charge of DUI and a possible stolen vehicle by Kentucky State Trooper Logan Wolfe.
Tuesday afternoon the trooper saw a 2006 Ford Fusion on Ky. 80 near the baptist church. He pursued the vehicle and got it stopped on Greasy Creek road.
The car, driven by Farris Wesley Collins, 35, of Manchester, came back stolen. Collins told Wolfe it was not stolen and that he had bought it from a used car dealership in Leitchfield, Ky. about a month ago.
The trooper performed a field sobriety test on Collins and placed him under arrest for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs/alcohol. Collins was also charged with receiving stolen property under $10,000, failure to wear seatbelts, failure to register transfer of a vehicle, failure of non-owner operator to maintain required insurance and failure to notify address.
Collins was taken to Advent Health Hospital for a blood test and he refused, according to the citation.
Collins appeared in court Friday and entered a not guilty plea. He has a preliminary hearing set for May 20th.
