Officer Jefferson Taylor III Charged with DUI

A Williamson Police officer is suspended without pay after State Police charged him with driving under the influence.

Jefferson Taylor III, 23, was charged with DUI and leaving the scene of an accident after troopers in Pike County, Kentucky say he crashed his cruiser before 4 a.m. Tuesday, according to court documents.

Williamson Police Chief Dave Rockel told us his department is conducting an internal investigation into the matter which will coincide with the Kentucky State Police investigation.

Rockel also noted how surprised he was because Taylor is an educated and very promising officer.
