Alcohol intake at big events makes for busy nights at Fayette County jail

On days when there are big events in Lexington such as Keeneland's opening day, football games and concerts at Rupp Arena, the Fayette County jail typically sees an increase in people booked on alcohol-related charges, officers said. When the event falls on a Friday — the busiest day of the week — the 25 or so corrections officers, court employees and nurses who work at the booking counter stay busy.
