LEXINGTON - A Garrard County man has been indicted by a federal grand jury on three counts related to possession of a firearm.
Hargus Edgar Gabbard of 333 Daughters Lane is charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, violating a domestic violence order by having the gun, and having the gun after being convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence.
The indictment, handed up earlier this month in U.S. District Court in Lexington, stems from Gabbard's arrest in Boyle County on Dec. 16.
Gabbard was under a domestic violence order from Boyle Family Court prohibiting him from owning a gun. The order was issued Nov. 15 and in effect through November 2010.
