Darren Doyle, story:
A Brownsville man was arrested in the early morning hours of Tuesday, January 18th after multiple encounters with homes on Indian Creek Road; one of which resulted in a homeowner holding him at gunpoint until law enforcement arrived.
In an interview with an Edmonson County deputy sheriff, the deputy said that they received a call around 1AM that someone had pulled into a driveway on Indian Creek Road, hit a vehicle there and left. Additionally, the deputy stated that same man drove through multiple yards, through a fence, and cut donuts in the lawns.
Steve Skaggs, a resident of Indian Creek Road, said the man drove into his truck, which was parked outside of his home.
"My wife heard a truck pull into our driveway and was revving the motor up," Skaggs said. "I went to the window and saw this truck out there and just had a feeling that this guy was up to no good. I watched the truck start to back out of my driveway, then all the sudden he took off wide open and hit the driver's side door of my truck. He took off down the road as I was headed out of the house."
Skaggs said he was able to get the door of his truck pried open and he went after the man, who was later identified as Kevin Sanders, (34) of Brownsville. Skaggs said Sanders had pulled into the driveway of the next house and Skaggs pulled in behind him.
"I didn't know who this guy was or what he was going to do and I saw he had a bottle of whiskey in his hand and it was about empty," Skaggs said. "He had all kinds of guns in his truck so I pointed my gun at him and told him not to move because the cops were on the way. He was drunk or on something for sure."
Moments later, the deputy arrived and placed Sanders under arrest. When asked why he hit Skaggs' vehicle, Sanders allegedly told the deputy that he had purchased a gun from Skaggs years before and it had a broken sight.
"This guy said 'you sold me a gun that had bad sights when I was a kid,' and I had no idea what he was talking about," Skaggs said.
The deputy sheriff stated that Sanders was at four different addresses on Indian Creek Road and damages were caused at three of them. Law enforcement also confirmed that there were multiple firearms in Sanders' vehicle.
Sanders was charged with:
Law enforcement said further charges are pending. No injuries were reported.
