On Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2017, at approximately 7:21 p.m., the Logan County Sheriff’s Department conducted a traffic stop on a 1995 Buick on Highland Lick Road. Upon activating the blue lights, the vehicle made an abrupt left-hand turn into a driveway at 1980 Highland Lick Road nearly striking a mailbox.

A passenger in the Boggs vehicle, Cody Knight, of Russellville, was taken into custody on a related warrant.
