Jack R. Cline, 33, of Paintsville, was arrested by Kentucky State Police on Oct. 1 on charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance identified as methamphetamine, first offense; public intoxication by a controlled substance; possession of drug paraphernalia and second-degree disorderly conduct.
According to the citation, the KSP trooper recognized Cline and knew he had an active bench warrant for his arrest. The trooper said in the citation that Cline approached him acting very erratically and nervous, speaking rapidly and unable to stand still without moving about. Cline stated that he was “high” and would not stand still long enough to perform balance checks, said the Trooper in the citation, at which the trooper advised Cline that he was under arrest.
The trooper asked Cline if he had anything illegal on his person, and Cline removed his hat where he had a hypodermic needle, and took out a very large butcher knife from his back and laid both on the hood of the trooper’s vehicle, according to the citation. The trooper searched Cline and found a black digital scale and a metal container with a plastic bag holding three bags of a “glass-like” substance later identified as methamphetamine, and according to the citation, when he found the item, Cline screamed profanities and dropped to his knees. Cline was placed in handcuffs and transported to the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center.

Brian Douglas Blair, 37, of Hagerhill, was arrested on August 17 after a Kentucky State Police officer responded to a call of a domestic dispute at the residence that Brian Blair shared with his parents, Steve and Nancy Blair. When the officer arrived, he found Steve Blair bleeding profusely from an injury on his forehead. According to the citation, Brian Blair had become belligerent during a verbal altercation with his mother over the use of her computer. When Steve Blair attempted to intervene, Brian Blair pushed him, causing him to strike a nearby door frame.
The door frame lead to Brian Blair’s bedroom, and the officer observed two orange needle caps in the floor of the bedroom, the officer says in the citation. The officer documented Steve Blair’s injuries and attempting to locate the suspect.
The officer made contact with the suspect after arriving at a residence nearby, when he heard the back door slam open, according to the citation. The officer wrote in the citation that he located Blair in an unsecured outside building, hiding under a blanket in muddy socks, shorts and a t-shirt, after following what appeared to be tracks from someone’s bare feet.
According to the citation, the officer advised Blair he was under arrest, and Blair resisted him, and the officer had to detain him by force.
The officer noted in the citation that several fresh “track marks” were visible on Blair, and that a search revealed four syringes in his left pocket, two of which were uncapped.
While being escorted back to the officer’s vehicle, Blair began yelling and acting belligerently, making it difficult for him to escort Blair up the bank, according to the citation.
The officer also noted that Blair had dilated pupils that did not respond to light stimuli, and exhibited “fidgety behavior,” and that Blair continued to yell and “violently rock back and forth” once placed in the cruise.
