FLEMINGSBURG | Acting on a warrant generated by a Buffalo Trace Gateway Area Narcotics Task Force investigation a member of the Fleming County School Board was arrested on a drug charge Tuesday night.

Roy Gray, who has served on the school board for nearly three decades, was arrested and bonded out following his arrest on a third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance charge, police said.

According to the Task Force spokesperson, the charge allegedly involves less than 30 units of an antidepressant, which makes it a misdemeanor charge.

Gray should appear in Fleming County District Court today for arraignment, officers said.

In March 2010, Gray was also arrested on a DUI and drug-related charge, which was a misdemeanor, prescription drug not in proper container and careless driving.

On March 11, 2010, Gray, of Ewing, was driving on Elizaville Road when he was pulled over by police just past the Fleming County High School.

According to FCS Superintendent Tony Roth, he was informed of the incident on Tuesday night.

"Mr. Gray is proclaiming his innocence," Roth said, adding the legalĀ  presumption is,"innocent until proven guilty."

    If he is proven guilty, I hope he will be removed from the school board.
