Ex-Lincoln school board member indicted in assault

LANCASTER — A former member of the Lincoln County Board of Education has been indicted on a charge that he "head-butted" the Garrard County High School principal during a basketball game in January.

David Hacker, 50, of Stanford was indicted last week by a Garrard County grand jury on charges of third-degree assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

On Jan. 20, Hacker was asked to leave the Garrard County High School gym for being disorderly during a Garrard-Lincoln basketball game, according to a citation.

As police officers escorted Hacker from the building, Principal Kevin Stull told Hacker "to not ever come back," a police report said. At that point, Hacker "got into the principal's face and head-butted him in the face," the report said.

Hacker resisted arrest and "was being loud by yelling and screaming," the report said.

Hacker, who is free on bond, will be arraigned March 20 in Lancaster before Garrard Circuit Judge Hunter Daugherty.
