Man Arrested for 2nd Time in Three Days
By West Kentucky Star Staff
BARDWELL - A man released from jail after an arrest two days ago has been arrested again.

Carlisle County Sheriff Will Gilbert responded to Gregg's Grocery in Bardwell after employees reported a man who appeared to be drunk was attempting to start a fight with a teenage male employee and was making obscene remarks to teenage female employees. By the time Gilbert arrived, the man had left, but after getting a description of him, the sheriff showed a photo of 32-year-old Devin Roberts. Employees reportedly confirmed he was the man who had been causing the disturbance.

When the sheriff went to Robert's home, he was reportedly passed out in the front seat of a running vehicle that matched the description given by store employees. He has a suspended license due to two prior DUIs, and had been arrested Thursday on a receiving stolen property charge. 

Investigation revealed that Roberts' 3-year-old son was in the home with another adult who was also drunk. The Department of Social Services came to the home and placed the child with a family member. 

Roberts was arrested for driving on a DUI suspended license, DUI 3rd offense, endangering the welfare of a minor, and possession of an open alcoholic beverage in a vehicle. Based on reported activity at the grocery store, he was also cited for menacing and disorderly conduct.
