Detective Jason Back coordinated the special assignments. Deputies assisting on the surveillance patrols included deputies Daniel Grigsby, Josh Scott, Tyler Morris and Kevin Berry.

Public intoxication leads to arrest

Walking in the dark along Arthur Ridge Road while intoxicated landed an East Bernstadt man in jail Sunday night, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputy Kevin Berry was on his way to a complaint call off Arthur Ridge Road in northern Laurel County when he encountered Brent L. Justice, 51, who appeared to be impaired and was walking in the dark along the road around 8:05 p.m.

Berry attempted to conduct a roadside investigation with Justice, who had a strong smell of alcohol about him, but Justice ran off while Berry was investigating.

Berry chased him a short distance, where Justice fell into a creek and after a brief struggle was arrested. Justice was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place, fleeing and evading police on foot, resisting arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Assisting at the scene was deputies Josh Scott, Gilbert Acciardo, and the Kentukcy State Police.

Domestic complaint leads to arrest

A domestic violence complaint led to the arrest of a Lily man over the weekend after his girlfriend allegedly broke up with him, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputy Robbie Grimes, along with Deputy Larry Parrott, were dispatched by Laurel County 911 to a possible domestic violence complaint on Lily Road on Saturday afternoon.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they observed the female victim’s car’s windshield had been broken and her phone had been thrown into a field, according to the arrest report.

Thomas K. Hodge, 19, of London, was arrested and charged with two counts of second-degree criminal mischief.

He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Two arrested on domestic complaint charges

A domestic violence complaint on Hicks Lane Saturday night led to the arrest of two individuals, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

After arriving at the residence, deputies determined that Kelly W. Main, 41, and Mechila Main, 40, both of London, had physically assaulted each other.

Both were arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault domestic violence and disorderly conduct, as both became belligerent.

Mechila Main was also charged with resisting arrest due to combative behavior during the booking process.

Kelly Main was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center. Mechila Main was transported by Ambulance Inc. Of Laurel County to Saint Joseph London hospital for treatment of an apparent eye injury allegedly received from the domestic violence incident.

Danville man arrested

A Danville man was charged with 17 counts of felony criminal possession of a forged instrument, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.
