A Radcliff man was arrested Monday morning by Kentucky State Police and charged with causing damage to a flatbed truck which was attempting to transport a repossessed 2019 Chevy Impala belonging to him, according to an arrest warrant.
James D. Stamper, 28, reportedly caused $2,000 worth of damage and the cost of labor to fix the truck. According to an arrest warrant, when he got in a vehicle June 16 that was locked onto the flatbed truck, he put the vehicle into drive and reverse several times and managed to “disconnect the vehicle from off the winch of the truck and drove the vehicle off the truck.”
The arrest warrant issued Saturday also said Stamper got into the vehicle, started it, was told to get out of the vehicle by the driver of the flatbed and eventually broke it free.
He fled the scene prior to police arriving, the warrant said.
Stamper is charged with first-degree criminal mischief, a Class D felony punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted.
He is being held in lieu of a $2,000 cash bond in the Hardin County Detention Center. He’s scheduled to appear today in Hardin District Court.
