CORBIN — Man arrested for reckless driving

A London man was arrested Saturday after almost colliding with a deputy’s car head-on, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Mark Hampton, 54, was driving a silver Chevrolet Uplander when he met the vehicle of Deputy Tyler Morris, who was traveling to a complaint concerning an intoxicated person. Hampton’s vehicle was in the wrong lane, and Morris was forced to drive his vehicle completely off the road to avoid a collision.

Morris conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle. A passenger in the vehicle was found to be the intoxicated subject Morris was heading toward. The subject was arrested for alcohol intoxication.

Hampton was arrested for reckless driving and improper lane usage. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Two arrested on warrants

A London man and a Corbin woman were arrested Monday by Detective Jason Back on several warrants, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Joshua Blackburn, 34, was charged on a parole violation warrant regarding a first-degree wanton endangerment and theft by unlawful taking conviction.

Robin Zelenka, 32, was arrested on a bench warrant for probation violation regarding a conviction of first-degree possession of a controlled substance-first offense.

Blackburn and Zelenka were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Woman arrested on warrant

A Woodbine woman was arrested Monday on multiple warrants, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deborah Hacker, 43, was sought on warrants from Whitley and Knox counties, and was arrested by Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter after she was found hiding in a closet at a residence on Dean Hundley Road.

Hacker was charged on a Whitley County bench warrant of arrest for second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument. She allegedly possessed and cashed checks from her mother and grandmother’s bank account. She was also charged on a Knox County bench warrant of arrest regarding a conviction of unlawful possession of meth precursor-first offense.

Hackler was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
