A Campbellsville man has been arrested and charged with DUI and other charges after he allegedly drove while intoxicated.

David L. Shrout, 46, of 108 Gowdy St., was arrested Sunday, Oct. 21, at 6:12 p.m.

According to Shrout's arrest citation, he was allegedly driving on East Broadway and ran off the roadway.

Campbellsville Police Officer Scotty Perian wrote that Shrout swerved into the east and westbound lanes.

Upon contact with Shrout, Perian wrote in court records, he had red, glassy, blood shot eyes and failed several field sobriety tests.

In Shrout's vehicle, Perian wrote that he found a pill bottle containing Oxycontin and Clonidine.

Shrout allegedly told Perian that he had taken Oxycontin and consumed cough syrup that contained Hydrocodone. An empty bottle was found under a seat in Shrout's car.

Shrout was charged with DUI, his third offense, failure to wear seat belts, reckless driving, failure to or improper signal, possession of a controlled substance not in its original container, illegal possession of a legend drug and two counts of first-degree possession of a controlled substance.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges in Taylor District Court on Oct. 22. Bond was set at $20,000 cash.

Last Wednesday, the charges were held to a Taylor County grand jury for possible indictment.
