CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

3 arrested at Corbin apartment complex

A Corbin man and woman as well as a London man were arrested Thursday at Corbin Manor Apartments following a complaint of a fight, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

George A. Snelson, 42, and Tina L. Lewis, 36, both of Corbin, along with Billy L. Rediker, 42, of London, were involved in a fight complaint when Deputy Mikey Ashurst was dispatched to the scene. A description of a gray Nissan Maxima was given by Laurel 911 Dispatch and Ashurst reportedly observed the vehicle backing into a parking lot upon arrival. Ashurst initiated an investigation at the same time another call was received that a male was fleeing out of one of the apartments where the fight was reported to have occurred.

As Ashurst attempted to locate the man. A woman reportedly came out of one of the apartments advising that a man she did not know was in her kitchen washing blood off himself. The man was Snelson, and Ashurst detained him and got him onto an ambulance for transport to Baptist Health Corbin.

Ashurst then allegedly returned to continue his investigation with Lewis and Rediker, who he had been questioning in the gray Nissan Maxima. They had abandoned their car, but were found hiding in a closet in one of the apartments. Both were reportedly determined to be under the influence when they were arrested. A white residue was found around Lewis’ nostrils.

Snelson tried to escape the hospital several times while being treated.

Snelson was charged with alcohol intoxication, second-degree disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.

Lewis was charged with public intoxication-controlled substances and second-degree disorderly conduct. She was also charged with an outstanding Laurel County bench warrant for failure to appear in court.

Rediker was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, driving on a DUI suspended license, first offense, and other traffic violations.

All three were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Ambulance, Inc. of Laurel County assisted Ashurst at the scene.
