West Virginia Man Arrested Three Times In One Day

VIENNA, W.Va., April 30 (UPI) — A West Virginia man had quite a day Tuesday, somehow managing to get arrested three separate times on three different charges, according to Vienna Police Chief George Young.

Gregory Allen Horner was arrested the first time while police were responding to a call about someone — who turned out to be Horner — using a fake prescription for Xanax at a Rite Aid pharmacy on Monday. While police were at the pharmacy investigating on Tuesday morning, Horner walked in with another fake prescription.

After being arrested for forging a prescription, Horner posted bond and was released.

A few hours later, police went to Horner’s home for a domestic dispute and arrested him for domestic battery after his wife got a protective order, the NewsCenter reported.

Horner posted bond, returned to the home on Tuesday evening, and was arrested again for violating the protective order.

After his third arrest in seven hours, Horner was arraigned and immediately sentenced to a mandatory 10 days in jail.
