Remove boulder from Kentucky River? Go to jail.





An Ohio historian is expected to turn himself in to authorities Thursday on charges that he illegally removed an 8-ton boulder from the Kentucky side of the Ohio River.

Steven Shaffer of Ironton, Ohio, has been in contact with authorities in Kentucky and indicated he will appear for his arraignment in Greenup Circuit Court, said Commonwealth's Attorney Cliff Duvall.

He faces a charge of removing an object of antiquity, a Class D felony that carries a penalty of one to five years in prison.
