A Liberty man arrested over the weekend after causing a disturbance with his car horn.
Deputy Hannah Lynn, with Casey County Sheriff's Office responded to the call Saturday afternoon on Chesnut Level Road, in reference to an alarm going off. The homeowner stated he'd heard a car horn honking on & off for several hours.
Deputy Lynn followed the sound to a residence at 113 Bailey Road, where she observed 49 year old David L Carmickle, in the driver's seat of a 2003 Ford F150 pickup, in the driveway, honking the horn. He stated he was honking to let someone know there were people inside and outside his home, talking to him.
This was the second contact that day with Mr. Carmickle, as he had called dispatch several hours prior, reporting people in his home that refused to leave.
The Deputy noted a strong odor of alcohol, and that Carmickle was sweating profusely, and talking out of his head. He also admitted to smoking Methamphetamine and drinking alcohol earlier that day.
Carmickle was medically cleared from the hospital, then lodged in the Casey County Jail on charges of Public Intoxication-Controlled Substance, and Disorderly Conduct-2nd Degree.
