Domestic complaints lead to arrests in Laurel County
A London man was arrested on Friday morning after he allegedly struck his girlfriend, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.
Laurel County Sheriff’s Sgt. Chuck Johnson responded to a domestic complaint on U.S. 25 , 8 miles south of London, on Friday at 2:34 a.m. When deputies arrived at the scene, they learned that an argument, and an altercation had occurred where Timothy W. Randolph, 20, of London, allegedly struck his girlfriend in her face with his fist and scratched her leg, according to the sheriff’s report. Deputies observed swelling and bruising around her eye and scratches on her leg, according to Root.
Randolph was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault. He was transported to the Laurel County Detention Facility.
While responding to the domestic complaint, deputies also arrested a suspect who was combative, and obviously under the influence of alcohol, according to the sheriff’s report. Following a brief scuffle with deputies, Bobby L. Snead, 20, of Corbin, was taken into custody. He was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place, menacing, resisting arrest, and terroristic threatening. He was transported to the Laurel County Detention Facility.
Deputy Kirk Mays assisted on the investigation and arrest.
