Case Against Auto Glass Shop Owner Eric Justice for Alleged Gambling Front Continues
February 17, 2010

A "motion hour" in the case of Eric Todd Justice, owner of Auto Glass Solutions in Lexington, Ky., was scheduled for this morning at 9:30 a.m. at the Bullitt County Circuit Court in Kentucky. Justice, who is charged with permitting gambling and possession of a gambling device, was arrested last August when police say they discovered that his auto glass business allegedly was a front for a gambling hall.

"There were no windshields," Hillview Police Officer Roy Raines had told™/AGRR magazine last August. "There were no tools, no anything. The name [of the business] has already been scraped off the door."

Calls to the Raines for an update on the case and a comment on today's hearing have not been returned. The phone number for Auto Glass Solutions has been disconnected, though the website appears to remain active. (CLICK HERE to view.)

Justice also is known by many in the industry for his history with Diamond Glass, where he worked as a store manager until he was deployed to Iraq with the National Guard in 2008. When he returned to the states in 2009, he says he found out that Diamond had been sold to Belron US and was told he no longer had a position with the company-and at that point he allegedly had started his own business.
