Police Roundup - Nov. 25, 2013

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Man reportedly strikes woman as she holds baby

A London man who allegedly struck his girlfriend while she held their 3-month-old child was arrested Friday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Michael B. Grubb, 34, is charged with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence), resisting arrest and second-degree disorderly conduct.

Deputy Robbie Grimes along with Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter investigated the complaint about 8:20 p.m. after the girlfriend came to the dispatch center seeking help. Root said she had bruises on her face where she said her boyfriend struck her. Fearing for her safety and the safety of her children, the girlfriend had fled the house with her three children, the oldest of whom is 5.

The girlfriend told officials her boyfriend had followed her to her car as she tried to flee and he was cursing her and tried to grab her.

Deputies went to the home on Cloud Lane and Grubb answered the door. Root said Grubb became combative, saying the “deputies did not want to go there,” adding he was a powerful man with close ties to elected officials in London. When deputies tried to arrest Grubb, Root said he resisted, screaming at and cursing the deputies.

Root said Grubb appeared to be under the influence of alcohol.

Grubb was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center and an Emergency Protective Order was served on him.

Lily woman arrested

A Lily woman was arrested Friday for failure to appear in a Fayette County court, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputy Daniel Grigsby arrested Melissa Smith, 21, about 6:23 p.m. Friday.

Smith was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
