[From LCT: Horky, whose career started and gained national industry prominence in Los Angeles, has apologized for his conduct. Since his arrest in December 2012, Horky has retained a loyal fan base among many of his peers and a strong following on social media. The longtime LCT 50 Largest Fleets operator, known for his candid advice and observations, was the subject of a lengthy feature interview in LCT Magazine in November 2006 that was nominated for a national magazine award in early 2008].
