Date of News Release: 01/22/2013
(Georgetown, Ky.) - On 01/21/14 at approximately 1201am Officer Robert Walters, of the Kentucky State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division, placed Kenneth Dozier of Georgia out of service for twenty four hours for the possession of alcohol in a full-sized commercial vehicle. At approximately 1:30pm on the same date the company owners of the truck arrived at the Scott County Inspection Facility to retrieve the truck from the out of service driver. Dozier claimed that he threw the trucks keys into the snow covered field behind the inspection facility in an attempt to keep the new drivers from gaining access to the vehicle. Dozier also violently damaged the on board truck computer with a replacement and repair cost of $1,005.00.
Dozier then fled the facility in a taxi cab before any Officers could arrive on scene. Senior Officer Trevor Wilkins was able to track the last known location of the taxi cab and locate Dozier as he attempted to flee the state in a Greyhound Bus. CVE Officers Walters, Wilkins and Philip Robertson where then able to apprehend Dozier. Due to the amount of damaged caused to the company vehicle and the fact that Dozier attempted to deprive the owners of the use of their vehicle, he was arrested for Criminal Mischief in the 1st Degree (a Felony) and Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle. Dozier was then remanded into custody at the Scott County Detention Center awaiting trial.
