B’ville woman arrested for public intoxication, wanton endangerment
Knox County Sheriff John Pickard said on Sunday Deputy Claude Hudson was dispatched to a residence on Waterson Street in Barbourville to investigate a complaint of a verbal domestic situation.
When he arrived he found Charlotte Davis, 23, a mother of three small children, outside holding her infant son.
Pickard said Hudson reported Davis stumbled toward the cruiser, and then fell into the cruiser with the child in her arms.
Hudson said Davis wanted to file a report on her live-in boyfriend for stealing her cell phone.
Hudson saw the other two children at the residence and arrested her for public intoxication and wanton endangerment for the children.
She was taken to the Knox County Detention Center, and was refused entry by the jailer.
Hudson then transported Davis to the Knox County Hospital emergency room for possible overdose. Davis was treated and returned back to jail, where she remains.
Pickard said Knox County Social Services was contacted in reference to the children being placed in a safe environment.

Two juveniles arrested in cycle theft
Two male juvenile suspects, ages 17 and 15, were caught pushing a stolen motorcycle away from Tri-County Cycle Sales after smashing out a glass window Friday night to steal it, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.
Root said that deputies Shawn Boroviak and Mikey Ashurst were first dispatched to a robbery in progress, however, when they arrived they determined it was a burglary.
Root said the owner was able to catch the two suspects because they triggered a burglar alarm. When the business owner arrived at his store to respond to the alarm, he told deputies he saw the two juveniles pushing a motorcycle on Powers Lane — which had been stolen from his business.
Root said the business owner was able to detain the two suspects until deputies arrived.
Both suspects were from Corbin.
Deputies, along with Detective Billy Madden, conducted an investigation and determined the two juveniles had broken out a glass window with a large asphalt rock to gain entry to the business, and then pushed the cycle out through the broken window.
Both now face charges of third-degree burglary and first-degree criminal mischief.
They were court ordered to be transported to the Breathitt County Juvenile Detention Facility.
On Monday a detention hearing was held in Laurel Juvenile Court, and both subjects were ordered held until their next court date of May 21.
Kentucky State troopers assisted at the scene.
Damage to the broken window was estimated at more than $1,000, and the damage to the stolen motorcycle was estimated at more than $1,000.
