Frankfort Taxi Driver Arrested For DUI

Police arrested a Frankfort taxi driver after they say he was driving under the influence.
Frankfort Police say they were notified about a taxi driver that was possibly driving drunk Monday afternoon.

They were unable to locate the driver until he found them at the Shell gas station on Versailles Road an hour later.

Police say the driver, 50-year-old William Maddox, bought beer at the convenience store then began to talk to police nearby who were conducting an unrelated traffic stop.

The officer quickly realized the man had been drinking.

Frankfort Police Captain Rob Warfel said, "She could immediately tell that he was under the influence of alcohol. He had slurred speech and had the odor of alcoholic beverage."

According to police, Maddox failed a field sobriety test, and a breathalyzer test showed he had a .129 blood alcohol concentration, over the .08 limit.

Police say they charged Maddox with DUI and possession of a controlled substance since they found pills in his possession.

Bluegrass Taxi in Frankfort said Maddox had only been with the company for 5 days and has been fired.
