CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Sheriff: Corbin teen doused car with gas, set it  on fire as part of a ‘feud’ with other children

A 16-year-old Corbin boy was charged with third-degree arson after he reportedly doused a car with gas and set it on fire early Saturday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

The boy reportedly carried gas to the home and set the fire because of a “feud” he has with the children of the car’s owner, Root said.

Deputy Tyler Morris investigated the incident about 1:30 a.m. and cited the boy after contacting a court-designated worker, as is required when a juvenile is involved in a crime. The boy was released to his parents’ custody.

Two arrested for domestic violence

Two London residents were arrested Sunday after they reportedly assaulted and injured one another, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Rosco Noe, 27, and Angela Paschal, 39, were each charged with fourth-degree assault — domestic violence with minor injury.

Deputies had been called to the home several times within a 12 hour period before the arrests. About 7 a.m. deputies Kevin Berry and John Inman made the arrests. Root said deputies found items in the home had been broken, apparently during a dispute about a cell phone.

Both Noe and Paschal were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Woman found passed out in car

An East Bernstadt woman was arrested Saturday after a deputy found her passed out behind the wheel of a minivan, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

When Deputy Tyler Morris found Edna Laymon, 59, about 5:30 a.m., she was in a minivan that was partially off the road at the entrance to to Abigale Place Apartments. The vehicle was still running. Morris banged on the window in an attempt to wake the woman, but she wasn’t roused until he opened a rear door and shook her. Root said Laymon woke up and hit the gas of the still-running vehicle, which was in gear. Laymon struck a fence and brick sign at the apartment’s entrance.

Morris determined Laymon was under the influence. He arrested her on charges of operating a motor vehicle under the influence and third-degree criminal mischief.

After Laymon was in the Laurel County Correctional Center, deputy jailers found a small baggie of an off-white granular substance on Laymon, Root said. Morris then charged her with first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense (suspected methamphetamine) and first-degree promoting contraband.

Man arrested as deputies serve EPO

An Annville man was arrested Friday after deputies were sent to a Parker Road address to serve an Emergency Protective Order, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

The order was to be served on a man in a blue Dodge Ram pickup.

Brian Roberts, 34, was arrested about 4 p.m. after deputies determined he was driving with a suspended license.

Deputies Robbie Grimes and Larry Parrott charged Roberts with driving on DUI suspended license, third offense, failure of non-owner operator to maintain required insurance, and other traffic offenses. Roberts was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

The protective ordered was served on Roberts.
