Lexington man charged with shooting at deputies serving EPO
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Lexington man is accused of shooting at two Fayette County sheriff’s deputies who were serving an Emergency Protective Order (EPO), according to the arrest citation.
The citation says when the deputies arrived at 37-year old Daniel Mastin’s home on Briar Hill Road late Sunday night, he was sitting on the porch and fired two shots at the deputies to “show them he meant business.” The deputies were not hurt, according to the citation.
The arrest citation says Mastin was intoxicated at the time of the incident.
According to the Fayette County Detention Center website, Mastin is jailed on $10,000 bond and faces two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment of a police officer.
