Local Fish and Wildlife Officer May Pass on Plea Deal

Murray, KY – The local Fish and Wildlife officer arrested for public intoxication and endangering the welfare of a child may pass on a plea deal offered by a Fayette County Attorney. Brad Lowe's attorney stated that he would "possibly reconsider" accepting a tentative agreement with the state which would allow Lowe to serve probation in lieu of jail time. Lexington based attorney Larry Anderson, says he does not believe Lowe endangered the welfare of a minor when he brought his 15 year old daughter into a Lexington bar using his badge to gain entry. Bar employees became suspicious and called local police who found Lowe inebriated and his daughter in possession of an alcoholic beverage. The Paducah Sun reports the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources plans continue Lowe's paid administrative leave until the completion of an internal investigation and the criminal trial.
