FRANKFORT, KY (Wed 3 Jan 2018) -- The Kentucky State Police Motor Carrier Compliance Investigation Program, along with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, was successful in removing a dangerous driver from public roads.

Through a joint effort, Scotty Kinman, who held a Kentucky commercial driver's license, had his commercial driving privileges permanently revoked after being declared an Imminent Hazard by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Through Officer First Class William Rein's investigation, it was discovered that Kinman was involved in several alarming incidents involving controlled substance use while operating commercial motor vehicles.

On August 18, 2017, Kinman was involved in a collision in Ohio on the interstate while under the influence of opioids and was found in his commercial motor vehicle (CMV), unresponsive. Three days prior, Kinman was cited for Impaired Driving in Ohio while in a CMV and was also found unconscious in his CMV in July after having overdosed on opioids.
