Somerest man arrested for DUI and lying about military status

By Hagan Wells

MIDDLESBORO, Ky. (WTVQ/WRIL) – A DUI arrest led to even more charges following the false statements a Somerset man made while in custody.

According to a report from WRIL, Middlesboro Sgt. Kenny Vanover was searching for a reckless driver of a red Pontiac around 5 p.m. on July 31. The call said the car was in the area of Highway 25 East and the Big Lots parking lot.

Sgt. Vanover found a vehicle matching the description turn back onto the highway and made a traffic stop.

The driver, Christopher Hoskins, 21, of Somerset, seemed to be intoxicated and he had the odor of alcohol on his breath. Inside his vehicle was a Jack Daniels whiskey bottle and an open 16 oz Budweiser beer. Hoskins failed the standard field sobriety tests and was taken into custody.

Once at the Middlesboro Police headquarters, as Hoskins was being processed on his charges, he made false statements to the officers, one of which served in the U.S. armed forces, that lead to an additional charge under the 2013 Kentucky Stolen Valor Act.

Self-inflicted wounds hurt the most.

“Tennessee Stolen Valor Act”

An amendment to Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-16-301 makes it a criminal offense to impersonate a member or veteran of uniformed service for purpose of obtaining money, services, property, or tangible benefits.

    Yes, his photo would convince anyone that at the age of 21, this individual carries himself with the deportment of a US Military Veteran. Someone should inform him that wearing a Kiss Army patch on your denim jacket does not make you a military veteran.

    So much fail in one human, and at 21 years old mind you.
    I’m half tempted to send this young gentleman a box of uniform pieces, extraneous ribbons and a case of Old No. 7 to see if a better result can be had.
    Any partakers?

        Ahhh, Soup Sandwich. I remember him… sort of… as a “poor thing” who seemed confused about his status. He was, indeed, an eye-opener.

        I remember this one well.

        A sad little man.

          Yeah, imagine you’re finishing up basic, boot camp or whatever, and this thing shows up at the main gate, asking for you by name.

          • Hack Stone says:

            The platoon members of his mother’s husband at that time are probably still talking about it. Just wondering if his mother was a Hottie or a Nottie, scarfing up that young man to be her military sponsor until he sobers up and realizes what he has agreed to marry.

            When Hack Stone was living in 29 Stumps Base Housing back in the early 1990’s, the couple next door was Corporal Fat Randy and his disgustingly obese significant other who outranked him by 20 plus years. The epitome of White Trash. Hack wonders sometimes if they are still together.

        Did anything unpleasant ever happen to this stupid spunkknuckle in the photo?

  4. So he disregarded the advice that Chief Masterson gave me when I first got transferred into M div. from being shitcanned from R Div., And I was on watch in main control and excited about my first Liberty Port so the Chief tells me to keep my pecker in my pocket and drink soda pop. I guess the DUI suspect ignored the Chiefs second advice but I don’t know about the first advice. Next stop was A Div. where I got my shit together, was asked to ship over and made MM3 near my separation. Is somerset related to Maum??

    A drunk, phony, and now a prisoner. Wonder if any group out there is aware of his ass. Think he likes chili?

    Okay, got enough here to work up a Whiz Wheel score, so let’s see:

    That must be a Spinal Tap sympathy meter – it goes up to 11 vice 10. (smile)

    This dude looks like a stoned Eric Forman. Looks like he needed BMC Albert “Red” Forman to put a foot up his ass.
