By Joe Jackson
MAYFIELD, KY - A Mayfield man was arrested on various charges on the parking lot of a local high school Wednesday. Graves County sheriff’s deputies were called to Graves County High School at 2:30 p.m. to assist the school’s resource officer with a non-injury accident on the parking lot. 

Deputies determined that 23-year-old Brett P. Eigenrauch was pulling into a parking spot when he struck a parked vehicle. The collision was witnessed by an officer with the Kentucky Department of Alcohol Beverage Control who was at the school waiting to pick up a student. Eigenrauch attempted to leave the scene of the accident but was stopped by the ABC officer. 

According to deputies, Eigenrauch was under the influence of methamphetamine and possibly other drugs. He also did not have a valid Kentucky driver’s license. Upon searching his vehicle, deputies found methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and a large knife in a sheath that was concealed inside a bag that was in the car. 

Eigenrauch was lodged in the Graves County Jail on charges of DUI, possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, possession of a deadly weapon on school property, failure to wear a seat belt and operating a vehicle without an operator’s license.

The owner of the vehicle, 18-year-old Rachael Hutson of Murray, was cited for expired Kentucky registration and for permitting an unlicensed person to operate a vehicle.
