Father of girl injured in SUV wreck arrested on assault charges

PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - A father accused of causing a crash that badly injured his 12 year old daughter is in jail.

Somerset Police say they arrested Jimmy Jasper, 56, at his home Friday afternoon.

It comes after the Pulaski County grand jury indicted him on an assault charge earlier this week.

Last month, police say Jasper was driving drunk, when his SUV crashed through a plank fence.

His daughter, Jaden, was a passenger.

She was just released from the hospital Thursday.
