Man faces charges after allegedly fighting with officers

A southern Kentucky man faces several charges after getting into a scuffle with some officers.

The Laurel County Sheriff's Office went to investigate a call of a drunk man causing a disorder.

When they arrived, they found 30-year old David Wagoner standing in the middle of Hopkins Cemetery Road.

Officers say they had to take away a large knife from Wagoner and that he began fighting deputies as they tried to arrest him.

Police say Wagoner then threatened to kill the deputies when he gets out of jail.

He is facing assault, threatening and other charges.
