WILLIAMSON -- A Williamson police officer charged with DUI after crashing his cruiser in Kentucky has been suspended without pay.
Kentucky State Police arrested Jefferson Taylor III, 27, of McCarr, Ky., early Tuesday morning in Hardy.
Taylor, who was off duty at the time of the crash, is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and leaving the scene of an accident. Troopers found him at his parents' house after the crash.
Williamson Police Chief Dave Rockel tells WSAZ.com that Taylor has been with the department nearly two years, and the charges come as shock.
