SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) — Police are searching for a south-central Kentucky man after a scare at a hospital in Somerset involving a bucket truck and a shotgun.
Somerset Police Lt. Shannon Smith told WKYT-TV in Lexington that Robert Beach drove an $80,000 truck around South Kentucky Rural Electric Cooperative Corp. Thursday night.
Smith said the man behind the wheel of the truck left his shirt and other belongings behind after being caught in the act.
A few hours later, a shirtless man turned up at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital, which went into voluntary lockdown.
Smith says Beach is well-known to law enforcement because of multiple arrests dating back 20 years.
Smith says police want to question Beach about where he got the gun as well as what happened Thursday night.
