This incident really surprised since I knew Freeman and his family, but apparently he was arrested Dec. 28 after a truck was purchased with a cold check in Bardstown, KY. Freeman Roberts, 75, was taken into custody Tuesday by Lawrence County Sheriff’s deputies.

According to his arrest warrant from Nelson County, a cold check for $20,500 was written to purchase a pickup truck at Auto Mart in Bardstown. Roberts was charged with theft by deception over $500.

Lawrence County Sheriff Garrett Roberts said the car lot repossessed the truck and even though the purchase was actually made by Roberts’ daughter, the check was drawn on his account and they wanted the arrest warrant served on him. Roberts said he doesn’t know what, if any, action will be taken against Roberts’ daughter.

Roberts was lodged in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center

SC.D.: Freeman got hurt pretty bad a couple of years ago when a spooked horse ran into a barn door that then flew the door back into him, breaking his collarbone and shoulder. They had to fly him out to Huntington.

Since it was reported that his daughter was involved, does that mean it was April Loudon-Burk??
April Loundon lives in Louisville; Bardstown is about 40 miles southeast of Louisville. Bardstown has a population of 11,000 with Nelson County has a population of 45,000.

Back in the 1970s/early 80s Freeman was supposed to have been rich and had a lot of money but apparentlly pissed it all away. He dated Naomi Judd for a little while back then years before she was famous.

Freeman always struck me as a semi-hippy-type. Somewhat too carefree. Most likely he would have been better off with the West Coast type of cultural life.

he also has a daughter named Heather! But hard to tell I personally think its ptiful an old man 75 years old who has worked all his life and payed his dues has to deal w/ a bunch of shit like that and possibly spend the remainder of his life in jail due to someone elses fault he should prosecute whoever stold & wrote the cold check! I'm sure the salesman would recognize the woman who wrote a check for that amount of cash! That alone would have been suspicious to me!
