KSP Trooper Appeared In Court

A Kentucky State Police trooper went before a judge to answer to charges of alcohol intoxication, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.

Kentucky State Police Sergeant Timothy Moore pleaded not guilty.

He was arrested by Pikeville Police outside the Expo Center last month.

Moore was suspended with pay.

An arrest citation charges Moore was drunk and yelled curse words and other obscenities at a Pikeville officer after a concert at the Expo Center.

Records say he refused to talk to police after his car was stopped.

In court, Moore's attorney says he is looking forward to resolving the situation.

“We will cooperate fully as we have in the past, Sgt. Moore as I've state has respects the system and respects the process. He's been very cooperative and continues to do so. We feel that once all the facts come to light, the situation will be resolved rather quickly,” Terry Jacobs, Moore’s Attorney, said.

Terry Jacobs says Sgt. Moore is ready to go back to his job with the Kentucky State Police.

Assistant County Attorney Roger Varney says Sgt. Moore will not receive any special treatment because he is a state trooper.
