HENDERSON, Ky (WEHT) – Officers received a bit more fight than they expected when they arrested a Fort Branch man Friday afternoon.
According to the Gibson County Sheriff’s Office, dispatch received a report of a male stumbling around the 200 block of South McCreary Street. Officers located Barry Flener, 50, in an intoxicated state.
