An Independence County man has been placed in jail and on a $50,000 bond after he ran over an unprotected fire hose in use at Oil Trough.
The court information says Dep. Kyle Tucker was called to 2nd and Charles Streets in Oil Trough at the request of Fire Chief Jimmy McDaniel.
Information given to Tucker led him to contact the driver, identified as 22-year-old Anthony Lacy. Tucker found that Lacy did not have a valid driver’s license.
The court record said Lacy also resisted arrest, causing injury to Tucker in the process.
Lacy is being charged with felony battery and four misdemeanors: refusal to submit to arrest; disorderly conduct; driving with a suspended license; and crossing an unprotected fire hose while the hose was in use
Prosecutors are also asking Lacy be charged as a habitual offender, having previously been convicted of four or more felonies.
