Local Man Arrested for Selling Alcohol to a Minor


On Tuesday, August 6, Kevin Boyd of Mansfield was arrested and charged with one felony count of knowingly selling intoxicating liquor to a minor.

According to Mansfield Police Chief Wayne Robb, the investigation had been ongoing since last year. An officer with the Alcohol Beverage Commission began working the case jointly with the Mansfield Police Department, under the direction of former Chief Boyd Farmer.

In March of this year, the Mansfield Police Department assisted the officer from the Alcohol Beverage Commission in the continued investigation. That investigation led to a control buy with an under aged individual, where Boyd allegedly sold an intoxicating beverage to the minor.

Boyd, 58, was arrested and taken to the Scott County Jail, where he is currently awaiting a bond hearing.
