NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- One central Kentucky Elvis Presley impersonator may be singing "Jailhouse Rock" after showing up for court drunk and dressed like Presley.
A Jessamine County District Court judge says 64-year-old David Blaisdell of Lexington must spend three days in jail for contempt of court. Blaisdell was wearing sunglasses and dressed in a rhinestone-studded shirt with a scarf draped around his neck when he was sentenced.
County Attorney Brian Goettl (get'-tel) says Blaisdell was in court for a pretrial conference on misdemeanor charges of stalking and violating a protective order. Goettl says the judge had Blaisdell tested for intoxication. The result was nearly twice the 0.08 level at which a person is considered legally drunk in Kentucky.
Goettl says Blaisdell told the judge he had had a few drinks the night before his court appearance Tuesday.
