Lily man arrested after asking gas station customers for money

A Lily man was arrested Saturday after complaints were made about him harassing female customers at a gas station, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Willie Hubbard, 24, had been asked to leave after he approached customers and asked them for money at House’s Liberty Station, but he refused to do so.

Deputy Larry Parrott, along with Deputy Daniel Grigsby, responded to the complaint about 8:30 p.m. and found Hubbard trying to get money from a woman in the parking lot as they arrived. Root said the deputies smelled alcohol on Hubbard and determined he was under the influence. Hubbard denied having drank alcohol and told deputies his dad had been drinking and got some beer on him.

Hubbard was charged with third-degree criminal trespass and alcohol intoxication. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Father-, son-in-law arrested for OWI

A father- and son-in-law were arrested Friday after each drove while under the influence, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

The arrests came after London-Laurel E 911 Communication Center received calls about 9:30 p.m.  about a blue Silverado pickup driving through people’s yards on McFadden Cemetery Road and causing damage. Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter, along with Deputy Robbie Grimes, responded and found the truck, which was driven by Randy Saylor, 36, of London, blocking the road.

Saylor was determined to be under the influence. He was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, driving on a DUI suspended license, no insurance, possession of open alcoholic beverages in motor vehicle, and numerous other traffic violations.

Also arrested was Saylor’s father-in-law, Wayne R. Smith, 48, also of London. Root said Smith had apparently driven to the scene where his son-in-law had wrecked.

Smith was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, driving on a DUI suspended license, no insurance and possession of open alcoholic beverages in motor vehicle.

Constable Tim May assisted on the investigation and arrest.

Both Saylor and Smith were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
