CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Argument leads to 4 arrests

Two men and two women got a free trip to jail in London, after a rowdy Sunday night in western Laurel County.

Leonard Swanson Jr., 46, of O Johnson Road, London was charged with fourth-degree assault — domestic violence, alcohol intoxication, second-degree disorderly conduct, harassing communications and resisting arrest.

Paul Swanson, 46, also of O Johnson road, London was charged with fourth-degree assault — domestic violence.

Crystal Kelly, 32, of Russell Dyche Highway, London was charged with second-degree disorderly conduct.

And Regina Allen, 38, of Woodbine was charged with alcohol intoxication.

All were jailed in the Laurel County Detention Facility.

The arrests came around 9:38 p.m. Sunday night, off O Johnson Road, approximately nine miles west of London.

That came after deputies with the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office were sent to a complaint from a person that his girlfriend was at his residence intoxicated and tearing his house up.

While Deputies Larry Parrott and Daniel Grigsby were on their way to the scene, the dispatch center advised them that the person complaining had called on three separate occasions, was very belligerent toward dispatchers, and stating that deputies were not getting there fast enough.

Once they arrived, the deputies encountered Leonard Swanson Jr.  — the person making the complaint — on his front porch steps. He was extremely intoxicated and cursing his ex-girlfriend, who was standing in the front yard by her truck.

After an investigation had been conducted, deputies concluded that Leonard Swanson Jr. had alleged been in an argument with his ex-girlfriend and had he allegedly pushed her down, while his brother — Paul Swanson — held her down.

Leonard Swanson Jr. briefly struggled with deputies while being arrested, and cursed them all the way to jail.

Paul Swanson allegedly held his brother’s ex-girlfriend down and struck her.

According to deputies, Crystal Kelly was creating a disturbance at the residence when deputies arrived, alarming nearby neighbors.

Deputies also determined Regina Allen to be in danger to herself and others.
