CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Arrest made after man walks from halfway home

A man who allegedly walked away from a halfway house in Louisville was arrested by the Williamsburg Police Department Monday — but not without a fight.

Around 8:30 a.m. that day, the WPD was contacted by Kentucky Probation and Parole officers asking for assistance at a Rains Street residence.

According to Chief Wayne Bird, 40-year-old William E. Bryant was facing charges of parole violation after allegedly walking away from that halfway house in November 2013 — under his original charge of rape.

Bird said when officers attempted to arrest Bryant, he allegedly struggled free from the parole officers and fled on foot.

Law enforcement followed Bryant as he allegedly led them on a three-mile foot pursuit along the Cumberland River banks.

Bird said he was later arrested one mile north of Three Point after K-9 Officer Brandon Prewitt and Rico located the suspect along the river bank.

He was arrested without incident.

Bryant now faces charges of second-degree fleeing or evading police, resisting arrest, third-degree assault on a parole/probation officer, violation of probation and second-degree criminal mischief. He also faces charges of failure to comply with the sex offender registry due to non-compliance.

He remains jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center — JailTracker records do not indicate a bond has yet been set.

The WPD received assistance from members with the Whitley County Sheriff’s Department, the Whitley County Animal Control Officer, Whitley County Emergency Manager, State Emergency Management, and the Kentucky Probation and Parole.

Man jailed in burglary

A Bee Creek Road resident got a scare Monday after someone kicked the door in to the home.

Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell said that Lt. Dennis Foley and Deputy Joe Prewitt responded to the residence after receiving a call about a break-in.

During the break-in, Harrell said the victim hid in the bathroom of the home while the suspect rummaged through the house.

A walk-through of the house by Foley turned up no suspects, however, Harrell said that Prewitt located a man in a field near the residence.

That man was 25-year-old Danny Ray Vanderpool — who allegedly told deputies he did enter the Bee Creek residence looking for his friend.

Vanderpool was arrested and faces charges of second-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief, attempting to flee/evade on foot and resisting arrest. He was released Wednesday from the Whitley County Detention Center on a $10,000 surety bond with an ankle bracelet requirement.

Foley and Prewitt were assisted by Kentucky State Trooper Tony Dingess.
