In a story in the April 30 edition of the Banner about the arrest of Michael Fortuna at a Chapmanville hotel, Billy Lawrence was listed as being in the room at the time of Fortuna’s arrest. Lawrence called the Banner Tuesday to re-iterate that he was not involved in any criminal activity. Lawrence said that Fortuna is a long-time family friend and was having trouble with his truck. Lawrence said he drove to the hotel to give Fortuna a ride. To be clear, Lawrence was not arrested or charged with a crime.
