A man who was allegedly riding a mini-bike erratically with a small child on board is facing charges including wanton endangerment.
Edward Reese, 27, of Cumberland, was arrested by Cumberland Police Officer Tyler Hensley on Sunday.
According to the citation, police received a call stating Reese was riding a mini-bike with a small child on the back.
The citation states the bike had been reported as being “all over the road” and was parked at the Family Dollar store. Hensley arrived at the Family Dollar and saw Reese attempting to pick up the mini-bike, almost falling in the process. Reese then got on the bike. A small child also mounted the bike. Reese was stopped and consented to field sobriety tests.
Reese was charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs and operating on a suspended or revoked operator’s license.
Reese was lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center on a $7,500 full cash bond.
