The General Assembly’s Interim Joint Judiciary Committee will meet on Fort Campbell tomorrow morning.
The co-chairman is State Representative John Tilley of Hopkinsville—who explains part of the reason he wanted to bring the meeting to the local post.
Representative Tilley says Fort Campbell is very important to the Commonwealth, so it was only fitting for it to host the committee.
The meeting is set for 10am and lawmakers are set to discuss how military personnel and veterans interact with Kentucky’s judicial system.
Hopkinsville Police are investigating an armed robbery at West 2nd and Fowler Streets from Friday night.
The report says the incident happened around 10:30pm, when 27-year old Nicholas Randolph of Clarksville was approached by a man with a gun who threatened to shoot if he didn’t hand over his watch and cash.
The suspect got away with the money and jewelry and the investigation continues.
A local teen was arrested following a traffic stop on Linwood Street early this morning for allegedly dealing drugs.
Hopkinsville Police pulled over what’s described on the report as a suspicious vehicle near 106 Linwood around 3:20 this morning, with officers reportedly smelling marijuana when they made contact with the driver—18-year old Jamauri Wilson of Hopkinsville.
A search of the vehicle allegedly turned up a baggy containing four individually wrapped bags of marijuana inside a fast food cup. Wilson allegedly admitted to smoking marijuana before being pulled over.
Wilson was arrested and charged with trafficking in marijuana, tampering with evidence and violation of his driver’s instructional permit.
A man injured in a wreck involving a motorcycle in Clarksville earlier this month has died from his injuries.
A news release from Clarksville Police says 66-year old Walter Skowron of Clarksville was driving a motorcycle eastbound on the Highway 76 connector November 10th when a westbound vehicle driven by 19-year old Kayla McClellan of Clarksville failed to yield the right of way and turned left into his path.
The vehicles collided in the intersection with Sango Road and Skowron was flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Police say he died from his injuries Friday afternoon and that charges are pending against Ms. McClellan.
