Hodgenville police arrested LaRue County Schools Superintendent Sam Sanders on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol shortly after midnight Saturday.
Sanders, who also was charged with speeding, was driving a school-owned car, according to Hodgenville Police Chief Steve Johnson. The arrest occurred about 40 minutes after midnight Saturday.
Bardstown attorney Doug Hubbard spoke on behalf of Sanders, saying he was asked to represent the superintendent.
“Our families go back a long way,” Hubbard said.
