LONDON, KY - On Friday, January 5, 2023 at approximately 9:17 P.M., Officer Mikey Ashurst arrested Farron A. Miller, age 52 of East Bernstadt, KY.
While on routine patrol, Officer Ashurst came up behind a vehicle and as he was running the tag, the vehicle veered off onto another road once he observed Officer Ashurst behind him.
Officer Ashurst found that the observed vehicle had an expired vehicle registration and once he was able to get turned around, found it sitting in the road and then it pulled into a random driveway. Officer Ashurst conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and the operator, identified as Miller, advised him he was going to that address.
During his investigation, Officer Ashurst spoke with the homeowner via a Ring Camera and advised that Miller was not supposed to be there.
Officer Ashurst noted that upon approaching a strong odor of Marijuana was coming from the vehicle. Officer Ashurst continued his investigation and determined that not only was Miller under the influence, but also had an active Parole Violation Warrant for his arrest.
Officer Ashurst was assisted on scene by Deputy Nate Bishop of the Laurel County Sheriff's Office.

- Operating a Motor Vehicle U/Influence Alcohol - 3rd Offense (Aggravating Circumstance)
