On Monday night a Leitchfield man allegedly high on an unknown substance was arrested after running nude around a trailer park on High Street.
Responding to two reports of a man running nude in the area of 210 High Street, Leitchfield Police Office Chase Melton arrested 29-year-old Leslie T. Neighbors after observing Neighbors standing nude in a yard while appearing to be under the influence of an unknown substance, according to the arrest citation.
After Melton placed Neighbors in handcuffs, Neighbors kicked Melton in the knee, resulting in Melton taking Neighbors to the ground. Neighbors continued to fight and attempt to “get free,” according to the citation.
Neighbors was arrested and charged with third-degree assault of a police officer, indecent exposure, public intoxication (excludes alcohol), and resisting arrest. He was lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center.
Assisting Melton at the scene were LPD Sgt. Robert Jackson, Officers Brandon Puckett, Robert Glenn and Grayson County Deputy Brandon Rafferty.
This arrest makes at least the third time Neighbors has been jailed in since August 2017 when Neighbors stole a vehicle out of the parking lot at the Dollar General Store at 2625 Elizabethtown Road. He wrecked the truck after driving it for about 200 yards. In September 2018, Neighbors was arrested on multiple charges after running from Grayson County Deputy DJ Newton.
This marks the second time since August 2017 that a Leitchfield man has been arrested for running nudeon a public street while under the influence. Then 46-year-old Michael Finn was arrested after running naked on Memory Lane, in Leitchfield, while under the influence of an unknown substance.
