STANFORD - A Lincoln County grand jury indicted seven people last week, including five men for flagrant non-support and one on charges of possession of various drugs.
Billy Joe Carmicle, 40, of 3465 Ky. 1778, Hustonville, was arrested in May after state police witnessed him swerving on the highway. When stopped, Carmicle reportedly told police he was going to jail because he was drunk and open beer containers were found in the vehicle. In his pants, the police reportedly found a baggy of marijuana, rolling papers, cocaine and four hydrocodone tablets.
Carmicle was charged with first- and second-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence of intoxicants, no operators license, no insurance and possession of an open alcoholic beverage container.
Arraignment has been scheduled for Aug. 13. State police vehicle enforcement officer Shawn Hines was the grand jury witness.
