A man with a rolling meth lab who hasn’t had a driver license in over 20 years will serve half a year in jail for running from the law.The man, Michael V. Lance, 39, was directed by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to serve 180 days of a four-year sentence, perform 100 hours of public service work and pay $500 plus costs for promoting the manufacture of meth, evading arrest, driving on a revoked license, and being a habitual traffic offender.Lance was the driver of a vehicle that sheriff’s investigator Steven Carpenter tried to pull over on Pigeon Hill Road this summer. The investigator saw a registration violation and turned on his lights to stop him. Lance took off, trying to evade the officer.“He turned onto Robert Wilson Road and pulled into a driveway,” Carpenter recalled.
