Incident with Senator Holland

Sheriff Scott Montgomery

Releases Statement on Senator Holland

I officially confirm that my Investigator Ray L. Byrd has charged Senator Bruce Holland in the incident which occurred on January 24, 2011 on Highway 10 West in Perry County.

Investigator Byrd has submitted the charges of Fleeing, a class A Misdemeanor, Careless Driving and Improper Passing.

This decision was made solely by Investigator Byrd who has my full support.  I also commend him for taking his time in fully researching the statutes and rulings involving person of Senator Holland’s position before taking action.  That decision further demonstrates Investigator Byrd’s professionalism.

I deeply regret the incident occurred but it was not by my Investigators.  Investigator Byrd could have done one of two things, ignore it or do the right thing.  Investigator Byrd chose to do his job.

I have instructed my Department not to discuss the matter further outside the Court System.  The Court will determine the outcome.

Senator Holland’s Office will be notified of this decision.  I have instructed him as to his need to report to my office to be formally charged.
