Three arrested after a traffic stop
Two Corbin men and a London woman were arrested Friday following a confrontation, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

When Ashurst pulled behind the vehicle it accelerated quickly and made a hard right into a driveway. Ashurst reportedly observed the driver, Devon Vandermark, 23, of Corbin, exit the vehicle and and knock on the door of the residence.
