BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Warren County Sheriff says a man is behind bars, thanks, in part, to an off-duty Bowling Green police officer.
The Sheriff says deputies responded to a report of an injury collision on Cemetery Road on Thursday, near the intersection of Castle Heights Road.
When they arrived, deputies say they found 23-year-old Roy Wyatt, of Glasgow, had been detained by the off-duty officer.
According to investigators, Wyatt was recklessly driving a stolen car when he lost control, left the road and ended up hitting a tree.
Deputies say Wyatt was clearly intoxicated when they found him. He was taken to the Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, and charged with theft by unlawful taking, DUI, criminal mischief, and driving on a suspended or revoked license.
He was taken to the Warren County Detention Center.
