Police authorities took 50-year-old Goshen, Kentucky resident Donald Jefferies into custody on Thursday, March 6 for charges of driving under the influence of prescription medication, driving while intoxicated, and three counts of assault in the first degree in relation to a Carroll County, Carrollton car accident that injured three people.

Kentucky State Police Dave Roberts was the one who served Jefferies the warrant a week after the accident, which occurred on February 26 near the KY 36 Bridge and Notch Lick Road.
