A Mayfield man was arrested on DUI and other charges after he drove his vehicle into a ravine.

The Graves County Sheriff's Office says deputies were called to an accident on KY 1241 at KY 45 just after midnight.

Deputies say 66-year-old Harry Hawkins ran off the road at the intersection and went into a ravine.

Hawkins had minor injuries but refused treatment.

Deputies found him sitting in the grass a few feet from his car.

After some field sobriety tests, Hawkins was arrested for reckless driving, operator's license to be in possession, failure to provide proof of insurance, and DUI.

Hawkins then allegedly made threats against several police officers. He was charged with terroristic threatening.

Hawkins was taken to Graves County Jail.
