Woman arrested after throwing moonshine bottles through windows

A Corbin woman was arrested early Saturday after she reportedly threw moonshine bottles through a home’s windows and disturbed neighboring residents, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Amanda L. Wyatt, 34, was charged with alcohol intoxication after Deputy Josh Scott was sent to a disturbance complaint about 1:45 a.m. on Clay Avenue, located 10 miles south of London.

When Scott arrived, he found Wyatt and learned she and a man had argued, then she was locked out of the home. At that point, she was angry and threw the bottles, breaking windows, Root said.

Wyatt had suffered cuts to her hand and no one was found inside the residence.

After Scott determined Wyatt was so intoxicated that she was a danger to herself, he arrested her and Laurel County EMS checked her at the scene.

Wyatt was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Two arrested after traffic stop

Two men were arrested Saturday following a traffic stop, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

The traffic stop occurred after 8 p.m. on Queen Street. Deputies Robbie Grimes, Larry Parrot and Tyler Morris arrested the driver, Edward M. Steele Jr., 50, of Lily, for operating a motor vehicle under the influence.

Also arrested was a passenger, Robert L. Brummitt, 51, of Corbin, who was charged by Parrott with alcohol intoxication. Brummett was also a wanted person in Knox County for warrants charging alcohol intoxication as well as second-degree wanton endangerment and alcohol intoxication, a Laurel County warrant for public intoxication, possession of marijuana, and alcohol intoxication, and a Madison County warrant for alcohol intoxication.

Both men were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

London man spits in his father’s face

A London man spat in his father’s face as he was arrested by deputies Friday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Tony J. Oakes, 25, was charged with fourth-degree assault and alcohol intoxication.

Deputy Josh Scott along with Deputy Daniel Grigsby were sent about 1 a.m. to a domestic violence disturbance on White Oak Road, located 13 miles west of London. Once there, they arrested Oakes, who was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Man hides from police in crawl space after loud party complaint

A complaint about a loud party along Kermit Jones Road resulted in the arrest of a London man wanted on an outstanding warrant, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

David L. Miller, 53, barricaded himself in a crawl space under the home after Deputy Josh Scott along with Deputy Daniel Grigsby determined he had an outstanding warrant in Laurel County. After the deputies got David Miller out from under the home, Root said he became belligerent, resisted arrest and alarmed neighbors with his yelling and cursing.

David Miller was arrested for the outstanding warrant as well as for alcohol intoxication, drinking alcoholic beverages in public, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.  

Also arrested was Arleen Miller, 45, of London, who was charged with alcohol intoxication and drinking alcoholic beverages in public.

Both Millers were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

East Bernstadt man arrested after he tries to kick in ex-wife’s door

An East Bernstadt man was arrested early Thursday after he reportedly tried to kick in his ex-wife’s front door.

John E. Osborne, 51, reportedly was drunk when he went to his ex-wife’s home about 3:30 a.m. Deputy Josh Scott responded to the call along Haley Ridge Road and, while he was headed to the home, the victim called a second time to say her ex-husband was trying to get into her house.

Once at the home, Scott found Osborne hiding behind a trailer hitch and arrested him. Osborne is charged with second-degree burglary and alcohol intoxication in a public place.

He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Scott found footprints on the home’s door. Osborne told him he had wanted to ask his ex-wife to take him back.
