A Lawrence County teenager was arrested this past weekend, after he was found inebriated apparently thinking he was Pete Rose, or one the Duke boys, as he was caught driving around wildly on a local baseball field.
According to the Lawrence County Sheriff Department report, on the early evening (around sunset) Sunday, January 6, 2019, the Lawrence County Sheriff Department responded to a complaint of a green pickup truck spinning in the ball field at Chapman Park on Route 2037.
Upon arrival, Lawrence County deputies made contact with a subject who they identified as Jonathon Dean Accord, 18, of Louisa.
A field sobriety test was conducted due to deputies detecting a strong odor of alcohol on Accord. Signs of intoxication were detected and a breathalyzer test was administered on him.
