A traffic violation led to the arrest of a Whitley County man on Friday, according to the Whitley County Sheriff’s Department. Whitley County Sheriff’s K9 Deputy Kirk Mays stopped a vehicle being driven by Danny McFarland, 37, of Williamsburg, for a traffic violation. During the traffic stop, Mays observed that McFarland’s speech was slurred and exhibited several other signs of intoxication, the arrest report said. McFarland gave consent for his vehicle to be searched, and in it Mays found two different pills. McFarland was charged with driving under the influence, disregarding a stop sign, failure to wear a seatbelt, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, second-degree possession of a controlled substance and two counts of possession of a controlled substance not in its original container.

Domestic violence complaint leads to arrest

A domestic violence complaint led to the arrest of a London man on Sunday evening, according to the Laurel County Sheriff’s Department.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Parrott along with Deputy Mikey Ashurst responded to a Ravenwood View Circle residence on the complaint that David M. McCauley, 43, was intoxicated and hitting his girlfriend.

When deputies arrived at the residence and investigated, they learned that McCauley had allegedly grabbed his girlfriend by the hair and slung her to the ground.

The victim had chest and hand injuries and sought medical attention at Saint Joseph London.

McCauley was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence) and alcohol intoxication in a public place. McCauley was transported to the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Theft report leads to DUI arrest; more charges possible

A theft investigation being conducted by the Whitley County Sheriff’s Department led to the arrest of a Corbin man for driving under the influence, according to a sheriff’s department press release.

On Sunday, Whitley County Sgt. Ken Shepherd went to a residence on Hwy 511 near Corbin to investigate a reported theft. While at the residence, Steven Hinkle, 36, who lives there, arrived in a gray Toyota. When Hinkle exited the vehicle, Shepherd noticed Hinkle appeared unsteady on his feet, and his speech was slurred, according to the arrest report.

Sgt. Shepherd determined Hinkle showed signs of impairment after performing standard field sobriety tests. According to the report, Hinkle told Shepherd he had taken methamphetamine and Xanax earlier that day. During the interview, Hinkle also admitted to manufacturing methamphetamine and gave Shepherd consent to search his property.

In the garage, Shepherd seized an HCL generator, clear tubing and other items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. Hinkle was arrested at 10:16 p.m. and was charged with driving under the influence.

Shepherd will present a case to a Whitley County Grand Jury for the felony possession of methamphetamine precursors.

London man charged with domestic violence

A London man was arrested on domestic violence charges after getting into an altercation with his father, according to the Laurel County Sheriff’s Department.

Laurel Sheriff’s Deputy Kevin Berry responded to a complaint that a male subject had a knife pulled on him by his son at a residence on Sinking Creek Road on Sunday night. Deputies had responded to the scene earlier, only to have the suspect run off on foot before deputies arrived. The suspect had allegedly tried to cut his father then, and had fled the scene, according to the arrest report.

When Berry was called to the residence, the father said his son had came back to the house and that an altercation had ensued. The victim had some cuts on his hand where he had tried to disarm his son. Berry was able to retrieve the knife and arrest Marion D. Smith, 46, of London. Smith was charged with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence) and was transported to the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Early morning fight leads to multiple arrests

An early morning fight led to the arrest of three individuals by the Laurel County Sheriff’s Department, according to Sheriff John Root.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Kevin Berry, along with Sgt. Brett Reeves, responded to a fight in progress on Hazel Patch Road at about 3:58 a.m. on Monday.

When deputies arrived, they found several people in the front yard, “yelling, and screaming, and creating a loud disturbance,” the arrest report stated.

Two females were observed in the back of a car that had the windshield broken. Inside the residence were several residents that were “bloody all over, along with busted up tables, chairs, and mirrors.”

Deputies observed a male subject flee from the residence wearing only boxer shorts, and as he fled he rolled down a hill through some briars. Deputies chased him down the road into woods, and upon locating him, he became belligerent.

After a brief struggle with deputies, Jon L. Raider, 21, of Mount Vernon, was arrested and charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place and resisting arrest. Also arrested was Matt Fletcher, 21, of Mount Vernon, who got into a brief struggle with arresting officers. Fletcher was also charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place, and resisting arrest.

Monica A. Bant, 21 of Stanford, was also arrested and charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place. All three people were transported to the Laurel County Correctional Center. Two juveniles were also taken into custody for alcohol intoxication in a public place and were released to their parents, according to the sheriff’s report.
