There was an Elvis sighting in Lexington and Nicholasville early Tuesday morning. A man dressed just like Elvis was walking down Nicholasville Rd. just before 8am. 64-year old David Blaisell says he was on his way to a court appearence at the Jessamine County courthouse. Blaisell says he's been an Elvis impersonator for the past five years and likes to wear the outfits.

Only problem, after being picked up and given a ride to the courthouse, a judge ruled him in contempt of court for being drunk. Blaisell says he doesn't know how he was still drunk after just having a few drinks the night before.

Blaisell was in court for stalking and violating a protective order. Charges he says will soon be dismissed.

    I know this man. I don't know what's happened in his life recently, but he was a talented, respected member of the community. I'm saddened to see this.
