CORBIN — Two men jailed on alcohol charges at traffic safety checkpoint

A traffic stop of a vehicle Saturday ended with the arrest of a Laurel County man and a Knox County man, both on several alcohol-related charges

The driver, Jim Sanders, 46, of Douglas Lane, East Bernstadt, was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, driving on a DUI suspended license, possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle prohibited, and failure to wear seat belts.

His passenger, Michael Queen, 33, of Maple Leaf Apartments, Corbin, was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place, possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle prohibited, and failure to wear seat belts.

Both were jailed in the Laurel County Detention Facility.

The arrests came Saturday around 9:57 a.m. during a traffic safety checkpoint set up on Ky. 490, three miles north of London.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root reported that Deputies Kevin Barry and Shane Rice were at the checkpoint when they observed a white-colored Ford Explorer pulling a trailer carrying a lawnmower turn around in the middle of the roadway, as it approached the checkpoint.

The deputies were able to locate the Explorer a short distance away and conducted a traffic stop on it, determining that the driver and passenger were both under the influence.

They were arrested afterwards.
