Kentucky Assistant Attorney General Charged With DUI


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville police have charged a Kentucky assistant attorney general with drunken driving.

Thirty-three-year-old Jason Moore told police he had been to a concert and had his last drink at the end. He refused a field sobriety test, but police say he smelled strongly of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and was unsteady on his feet.

Police found a cup in the car with beer left in it.

Police say Moore was charged with first-offense driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and possession of an open container early yesterday.

Attorney general's office spokesman Corey Bellamy confirms that Moore is an assistant there. He says Attorney General Greg Stumbo is aware of the charge but has no further comment.
