Betcha he was a hardass on dope-smokers and gun-toters


PENNINGTON GAP — The fallout from Pennington Gap Police Chief Bryan Young's arrest continued Monday, as the Town Council voted unanimously to terminate his employment and begin the search for a replacement.

Young, 41, was arrested Thursday on prescription drug distribution and gun charges at the Lee County Courthouse by agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
