A Pulaski County man accused of hitting his sister with a vehicle during a December 2013 incident appeared in court this week for an unrelated charge.
Ty Ruben Boling, 40, of Grundy Road, Somerset, appeared before Pulaski Circuit Judge David A. Tapp Monday and pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree possession of a controlled substance.
Boling was arrested in March 2013 during a traffic stop on Ky. 1247. A Kentucky State Police trooper allegedly found Oxycodone on Boling.
Boling is also facing a number of unrelated charges after he allegedly struck his sister, Lorrie Dykes, 43, with his car, a Ford SUV, during a dispute between the siblings on Grundy Road on Dec. 12, 2013.
Investigators said the impact appeared to be intentional.
“She got in the way and he hit her with the car,” said Lt. Troy McLin, with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, after the incident happened.
Boling allegedly fled the scene before deputies arrived. Eubank Police Chief Colin Hatfield was alerted about the pursuit and encountered Boling around Nelson Valley Road.
Boling went into the Bent Creek subdivision off Ky. 39, then back onto the main road southbound, according to Hatfield.
Eventually, Boling’s vehicle was brought to rest using “stop stick” devices, placed by KSP in the road to deflate the vehicle’s tires.
Boling was taken to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital after the incident. After an overnight stay there, he was lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center.
Boling remained in jail as of Monday.
Dykes was also taken to LCRH for non life-threatening injuries.
Boling was charged with two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree assault, driving a motor vehicle under the influence, first-degree criminal mischief, operating on a suspended licenses, reckless driving, disregarding a stop sign, and leaving the scene of an accident.
Those charges have not been presented to a Pulaski County grand jury.
Pulaski County Commonwealth's Attorney Eddy Montgomery declined to comment on the pending charges related to the December 2013 pursuit.
During Monday’s hearing, Montgomery said he would recommend a one-year sentence for the unrelated drug charge.
Tapp set final sentencing for Jan. 17.
