An East Point man is facing several charges after a crash that occurred on Tuesday.
It happened in Paintsville near the Peking restaurant and Preston Park.
Paintsville Police say several witnesses led them to 38-year-old Shawn Michael Thacker of East Point who apparently ran a car off the road before crashing his truck.
He failed a field sobriety test and reportedly refused to take a breathalyzer.
There was an open bottle of whiskey in that truck, according to Police.
Thacker was allegedly very uncooperative once taken into custody – at one point attempting to kick officers.
He’s facing numerous charges including leaving the scene of an accident, operating a motor vehicle under the influence, wanton endangerment, disorderly conduct and more.
He’s being held in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center in Paintsville.
