Former Special Sheriff’s Deputy Back Behind Bars

A former Harlan County special sheriff's deputy is back behind bars after being rushed to the hospital last night for a seizure.

Scott Moore was arrested Friday night at his home in the Highsplint area of Harlan County after police say they responded to a dispute between him and a family member. He was charged with fourth degree assault. Moore is also charged in connection with the death of Leslie Cox in June of last year, after police say a gun accidentally went off in Moore's hand.
