CORBIN — Keavy man jailed after alleged DVO violation

A custody dispute report led Laurel Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Grigsby to Jackson-Fariston Road Sunday afternoon.

Laurel Sheriff John Root said when Grigsby arrived at the residence, he learned from a woman there that a male subject had reportedly violated a Kentucky Domestic Violence Order (DVO).

The deputy continued his investigation, Root said, and found that male subject in London — allegedly violating the DVO.

Grigsby arrested 35-year-old Danny R. Hammons, of Keavy, and charged him with violating the DVO.

He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center and released the next day on a $2,500 surety bond.

His next court appearance is slated for March 18.

Lily man arrested on domestic violence charges

A Lily man who allegedly threw his wife to the ground before forcing her into a vehicle was arrested Saturday.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root said Deputy Kevin Berry arrested Roger L. Brown, 56, on Lily School Road after investigating the complaint concerning his wife.

When the vehicle stopped at a gas station near Lily, Root said Brown’s wife jumped out of the vehicle and hid inside the business until Berry arrived at the scene.

Brown now faces charges of fourth-degree assault by domestic violence. According to JailTracker records, he also faces a second charge of fourth-degree assault through domestic violence and third-degree terroristic threatening. He was released from the Laurel County Correctional Center Monday on a $10,000 fully-secured bond.

Assisting on the investigation at the scene were deputies Robbie Grimes, Larry Parrott, and Daniel Grigsby.

Man arrested after TV tossed in the rain

A man who allegedly damaged various items in his parents’ home was arrested Sunday morning.

Willie Hubbard, 24, of London, remains jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center under a $2,500 surety bond.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root said Hubbard faces charges of fourth-degree assault through domestic violence. Root explained that Deputy Kevin Berry was dispatched to a Line Creek Road residence, where he learned that Hubbard allegedly had damaged content in his parents’ house, including throwing a television and other items into the trash outside in the rain.

Root added that Hubbard allegedly threatened to kill both his parents and briefly struggled with them.
