News Minute: Here is the latest Kentucky news from The Associated Press at 11:40 a.m. EDT

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Energy companies' scrap plastic pipe is being turned into 'fish attractors' in at least three southern states. Kentucky biologists have made hundreds of the mini-artificial reefs and set them out in lakes and other waterways. Louisiana and Tennessee are starting similar programs. Biologists say small fish gather around the structures for shelter and to eat the algae and aquatic insects that glom onto them. That brings in the larger fish that anglers go for.

FRANKLIN, Ky. (AP) - Nearly 14 months after being shot three times while trying to serve a warrant, Simpson County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Eddie Lawson returned to work Monday. Lawson, a 25-year law enforcement veteran who has worked long enough to retire, said he isn't ready to turn in his badge.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Police in Tennessee say they will be asking a grand jury to bring charges because investigators believe bounty hunters shot two men in a wild incident recently. Clarksville Police spokesman Jim Knoll says authorities will ask a grand jury on Monday to bring charges after the shooting last weekend in which a man was fatally wounded. Authorities say neither man shot was the person the bounty hunters were trying to serve with a warrant.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Police in Lexington, Kentucky, have identified a man charged in a machete attack at a university coffee shop. Police said 19-year-old Mitchell W. Adkins of Cincinnati was charged Friday with first- and fourth-degree assault and three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment.
