The Murray Police Department apprehended Isaac Gough, 19-year-old freshman from Union Town, Ky., at approximately 2 a.m. on Jan. 19 after he hit four parked cars in the parking lot of Campus Evolution Villages North while under the influence of alcohol.

Gough was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, reckless endangerment, failure to produce insurance and wanton endangerment of the second degree – a class A misdemeanor.

Gough was handcuffed and taken to the Calloway County Jail. His $2,000 bond was posted and he was released at 6:59 p.m. later that day.

One year in prison, for the charge of wanton endangerment of the second degree, is the largest penalty Gough could face.

A court date for Gough has not been determined.
