Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Parrott arrested Ashley B. Edwards, 27, of London, after learning that she was wanted on a bench warrant, according to the arrest report. Edwards was arrested on West Cumberland Gap Parkway around 8:01 p.m. following a routine traffic stop.

Deputy Tyler Morris responded to a report of a “highly intoxicated” man at a service station at 6 p.m. Friday. When Morris arrived at the service station, he located Timothy L. Leach, 43 of Corbin, and determined he was very intoxicated and a danger to himself, Root said.

Tenn. fugitive in custody

A Tennessee fugitive is now in custody after being arrested during a traffic stop on Hwy. 92W, according to the Williamsburg Police Department.

About 8:40 p.m. Tuesday, Capt. Eddie Cain stopped a 2000 Dodge van for seatbelt violations and careless driving. During the stop, the driver, Miranda K Broyles, 26, was cited for careless driving and failure to wear a seatbelt. Further investigation revealed active failure to appear warrants on Robin I Pool, 26, of Williamsburg.

Cain was then given false information by Broyles about the identity of her boyfriend, James A. Fields, who was also a passenger in the vehicle. A warrant check revealed Fields was a wanted fugitive from Nashville, Tenn., for sex offender non-compliance. Fields was also wanted on numerous local charges, according to the arrest report.

Pool was arrested and charged with two counts of failure to appear and jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center. Broyles was cited for careless driving and failure to wear a seat belt. She was also arrested and charged with second-degree hindering prosecution or apprehension and was jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center.

Fields was arrested and charged with a third-degree terroristic threatening warrant out of Laurel County, as well as a failure to appear warrant out of Laurel County and fugitive from another state warrants out of Nashville, Tenn. He was also charged with theft of identity and was jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center awaiting extradition to Tennessee.

Cain was assisted at the scene by Officer Brandon White of the Williamsburg Police Department.
