WILHOIT ALLOWS 20 DAY EXTENSION;

NEW PRETRIAL DATE IS SEPT. 18 IN BILLY COLLINS, JR. CASE AGAINST LOCAL POLICE AND OFFICIALS

ASHLAND, Ky. -- (August 18, 2017) U.S. District Judge Henry Wilhoit, Jr. granted a 20 day continuance in the Billy Collins, Jr. Estate civil lawsuit against four Lawrence County, Ky. police officers and their employers and supervisors in a June 2015 case.

Bill Collins, Jr., 56, of Louisa died during an arrest attempt by two LPD officers and two Lawrence County deputies. He had been arrested for disorderly conduct outside the LCHS graduation exercises where Sergeant Steve Wilburn took him into custody and transferred him to Louisa City Hall to await a transfer to the BSRDC.

But Collins, no stranger to the officers after a lengthy arrest record for non violent petty crimes, refused to enter the building and hung to the railing. Collins then broke free and managed to barricade himself in city hall. He was tasered by the officers multiple times and struck with police sticks at least three times, the video shows.

Collins, a 5'6", 230 lb. man, apparently had a heart attack during the arrest and was given CPR by the officers before being pronounced dead at TRMC after transfer.

The final autopsy indicated 'homicide' as the cause of death.

The incident at city hall was recorded on a police chest camera and posted on the internet.

No arrests were made and a Lawrence Grand Jury led by Asst. Commonwealth Attorney Tony Skeens decided there was no evidence of foul play despite not having the autopsy report to look at. There are no records of the grand jury meeting except a "no true bill" on a form filed in Circuit Clerk Jodi Webb Parsley's office.

Members of Collins family were shocked when there was no further investigation and filed suit. The lawsuit, which could hit seven figures according to local observers, was filed June 2 of 2016 and a pretrial hearing was set for August 18, 2017 after 83 motions and other entries such as depositions have been made on the record.

Officer Wilburn's deposition is 99 pages long, and several of the other depositions are extremely long as well.

Here are today's (August 18) order from the judge and the appeals for more time which include the names of the attorneys for both sides.

Mike Curtis of Ashland is representing the Collins Estate.
