LaRue County Schools Superintendent Sam Sanders was charged early Saturday with driving under the influence by Hodgenville City Police.

Police Chief Steve Johnson said Sanders was driving a car registered to LaRue County Board of Education. He allegedly pulled out in front of another vehicle on Water Street. Johnson said he speeded up when a city officer's cruiser fell in behind him.

Chief Johnson said Sanders was taken to LaRue County Detention Center and released shortly after he was brought there.
