The Clay County Sheriff’s office reports that they arrested 23-year-old Paul Davis of Hartley early on Thursday (6/27/13) on B-24 near Everly.

A Clay County Deputy initiated a traffic stop with having prior knowledge that the registered owner had suspended drivers license. It was found the registered owner was not driving but the Deputy smelled an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle and saw an open container of beer in the vehicle. Upon further investigation, the Deputy found two more open containers in the vehicle and found it appeared that Davis had supplied beer to the minors in the vehicle.

Twenty-year-old Kyle Frederick, 20-year-old Brennen Roth, and 19-year-old Matthew Murphy, all of Hartley, were cited and released for Underage Alcohol Possession.

Davis was charged with Supplying Alcohol to Minors and open container. He was later released on a $1,000 cash or surety bond.
