Former prosecutor Matt Conway arrested on DUI charge

Former Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Matt Conway was arrested Thursday night on a charge of driving while intoxicated.

Conway, the younger brother of Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway, was released on his own recognizance Friday and will be arraigned in Jefferson District Court on Tuesday.

According to the police report, a police officer pulled Conway over after observing him run a red light at Breckenridge Lane and Willis Avenue, alleging he smelled of alcohol and failed a field sobriety test.

Conway, who now works in private practice, refused to take an alcohol breath test but admitted he had a few drinks, according to the report. He was also charged with running a red light.

Conway did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

In May, Conway resigned from the Jefferson County commonwealth's attorney's office for undisclosed reasons. He was the subject of drug investigations in 2008 and 2009 but was not charged either time.

In 2010, Conway was disciplined for lying to Louisville Metro Police officers — who were questioning him in connection with an internal police investigation — by telling them that he had not been alerted by a detective that he was under investigation for possible drug use and trafficking.

Several days later, Conway admitted to investigators that Detective Ronald Russ had tipped him off. Conway was placed on probation and told that his job performance needed to improve and that he must submit to “random or unannounced drug tests.”
