POLICE: Shepherdsville man goes on wrong-way driving spree after taking THC oil
Police say he was talking to a man named "Gary" who wasn't really there.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Shepherdsville Police say they have arrested a man who was driving all over the road after he had taken THC oil.
According to an arrest report, officers from the Shepherdsville Police Department were dispatched to the Beech Grove Market, near the intersection of Preston Highway and Old Beech Grove Road, after someone reported that an intoxicated driver was "all over the road."
While an officer was on the way there, the suspect, 18-year-old William Kish IV, allegedly left the market and side-swiped a car, causing damage to both vehicles.
Police say he then continued on the road, driving in the wrong lane, causing another vehicle to have to drive off the road to avoid a collision.
Officers eventually found Kish on Oak Grove Boulevard. His car had damage to the front left fender, and a flat tire, according to the arrest report.
Police say Kish had slow, slurred speech, and could hardly stand, and nearly fell over. After being placed inside the police car, he allegedly tried to talk to his friend, Gary -- a person who wasn't there.
According to the arrest report, Kish admitted to taking "dabs" -- a term police say refers to pure THC oil -- in a vaporizer.
He was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs and wanton endangerment. He is currently being held in the Bullitt County Detention Center.
