A Hodgenville man faces several charges after a routine traffic stop.
Gregory Grant, 43, was charged with disregarding a stop sign; criminal littering; no brake lights; operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, aggravator, second offense; third-degree terroristic threatening; and possession of firearm by convicted felon, by Hodgenville Officer Brandon Casey.
According to the citation, Grant was driving a vehicle from the vicinity of a fast food restaurant on S. Lincoln Boulevard about 1 a.m. Officer Casey said Grant’s vehicle had a broken tail lamp and he observed Grant run a red light and throw a wrapper out of the car window.
The officer signaled Grant to stop. He said Grant failed a field sobriety test but refused to take an alcohol concentration test.
When he searched the vehicle, he found a firearm in the glovebox. Kentucky law forbids firearm possession to those with a prior felony conviction.
Grant was lodged in the LaRue County Detention Center under $9,500 unsecured bond. He will be arraigned Jan. 30 in LaRue District Court.
