GREENVILLE, Ky. (2/25/13) – Over the past few days, SurfKY News has been slammed with contacts by individuals concerned about the safety and health of Greenville Police Chief, Darren Harvey. Local citizens have suspected that Harvey’s recent surgery was the result of an incident that took place several weeks ago where Chief Harvey was impacted by another vehicle while on a traffic stop. Apparently, this was not the case.
According to Vicki Harvey, Chief Harvey’s wife, the surgery was actually the result of some pain that the Chief has been going through for some time.
“He had some routine tests done on a cat scan,” said Mrs. Harvey. “That did not show any signs of a problem, but he was still hurting so bad he decided to see a surgeon. Darren had been told it was possibly his gall bladder.”
Mrs. Harvey went on to state that the surgeon schedule a routine out-patient gall bladder removal for Thursday of last week. After the surgery was completed, they have found other complications since then. Further tests were run, but Chief Harvey cannot currently eat or drink anything.
Once the Police Chief can successfully keep food down, he will be released. Mrs. Harvey stated that they were in hopes of no more than two or three more days of being admitted to the hospital.
The Harvey family requested that the public be made aware that they are very thankful to the community, for prayers, cards and concerns.
Chief Harvey is currently listed in stable condition at Baptist Hospital in Madisonville.
