Teens Arrested, Charged In Connection With DUI Joyride

Police arrested two teens in Oldham County after what they described as a drunken joyride through an upscale subdivision.

Lori Elkins said she noticed something was amiss when she left for work around 6:3 a.m. Thursday.

"When I left, I noticed that there was a lot of muddy tire tracks in our yard, but also the silk fencing across from our driveway was gone."

When Elkins got to the end of her street, she says she spotted a maroon Dodge Charger sitting in the middle of her neighbor's yard.

"Clearly, I think they had been there all night," she said.

Elkins said she alerted her neighbor, and about that time, the car started moving slowly and erratically all over the road. The vehicle hit trash cans and whatever else was in the way.

"When he attempted to run over the tree, he obviously figured out that he couldn't drive over the tree, so he sort of side swiped the tree and took off part of the front fender," Elkins said.

Elkins said each time the car hit something the driver got out of the car to inspect the damage.

"My husband called the police again and said if you guys don't get out here, somebody is going to get hurt or killed because these guys are just completely out of it," Elkins said.

Police caught up with the car nearby about 45 minutes later and arrested two 19-year-olds.

Christopher Hurley and Mackey Middleton face multiple charges, including wanton endangerment, alcohol intoxication, criminal mischief, reckless driving and possession of an open alcohol beverage container.
