CORBIN — 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.

Deputies Mikey Ashurst and Tyler Moore reportedly observed a whilte Ford Taurus commit a traffic violation. 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.

According to Root, the residence happened to be that of an off-duty state trooper. After an investigation, Ashurst determined that Vandermark did not know the person at the residence. Vandermark allegedly stated that he started to run because he did not have insurance.

Deputies reported smelling the odor of marijuana about the occupants of the vehicle and conducted an investigation. Devon Vandermark was found to be under the influence.

Passenger Stephanie Vandermark, 23, of London was also found to be under the influence. When she exited the vehicle she began screaming and cursing.

A third passenger, Dustin Stokes, 22, of Corbin, was also found to be under the influence. All three subjects reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana earlier, Root said.

Devon Vandermark was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, failure to maintain required insurance, and failure to signal.

Stephanie Vandermark was charged with public intoxication–controlled substances, second-degree disorderly conduct, and an outstanding Knox County bench warrant.

Stokes was charged with public intoxication–controlled substances.

All three were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
