Police Roundup - March 25, 2014

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

A London man was arrested Monday after he tried to evade a traffic stop and ended up overturning his vehicle, according to Kentucky State Police Post 11 London Public Affairs Officer Trooper Lloyd Cochran.

Ryan E. Hall, 21, failed to stop for Sgt. Steve Walker, who was patrolling KY 1956 about 4 a.m. when he reportedly saw Hall recklessly drive a 2006 Chevrolet Impala. Walker turned on his emergency lights and the pursuit began and continued onto Glenview Road for about two miles until Hall lost control of the vehicle, which went off the road before it overturned.  

Hall fled on foot into a wooded area where he was apprehended several minutes later after a short foot chase. He is charged with DUI 1st offense, no operators license, speeding, failure to wear a seat belt and first-degree fleeing-evading police.

Also arrested was Joshua Sizemore, 36, of Keavy, who is charged with public intoxication, receiving stolen property and persistent felony offender.

Walker is in charge of the investigation. He was assisted at the scene by Trooper Chris Saunders, Laurel County Sheriff’s Office and the  East Bernstadt Fire Department.

Woman reportedly strikes, threatens husband

A London woman was arrested Sunday after officers responded to a complaint that a woman had assaulted her husband and threatened him with a shotgun, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Sylvia Bowman, 55, was arrested about 7 p.m. after deputies Larry Parrott and Charlie Johnson as well as a forest service officer and Kentucky State Police responded to the address on London Dock Road. When officers arrived, they heard two individuals inside the home yelling at each other.

Officers learned the man had allegedly been struck two times – once in the face and once in the neck. A shotgun was found leaning against a wall in the same room where Bowman was.

Bowman was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault – domestic violence. She was also  charged on two Laurel County bench warrants for failure to appear in court on numerous traffic violations, including operating a motor vehicle under the influence. She also had a Knox County bench warrant for failure to appear in court regarding operating a motor vehicle under the influence. Bowman was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
