A two-time gubernatorial candidate spent Monday night in jail charged with a felony. Otis “Bullman” Hensley, who ran for governor in 2003 and 2007 and campaigned around the state on giant fake bull, was arrested Monday evening on suspicion of an unlawful transaction with a minor, according to the Harlan County Detention Center in Evarts.
No details about the case were available.
A first-degree unlawful transaction charge can include sexual activity with a minor or drug use other than marijuana, according to the Kentucky Revised Statutes. Hensley was being held on a $15,000 full-cash bond and was expected to be arraigned Tuesday in Harlan District Court.
