CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Two Londoners arrested after domestic dispute, deputies injured

Two Londoners were arrested Monday after they fought, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Emanuel Hoskins, 38, was arrested after deputies Steve Hoskins and Josh Scott responded before 9 p.m. to a 911 complaint about a domestic dispute at a Maple Grove Road home.

When deputies arrived, they could hear two people inside the home “screaming at each other,” Root said. When deputies entered the home, they found broken glass from the television and learned that Hoskins had struck his girlfriend in the face, causing injury near her eye.

When deputies tried to arrest Hoskins, he fought the deputies. A third deputy, Greg Turner, arrived and Hoskins was subdued.

Hoskins is charged with  fourth-degree assault, resisting arrest, third-degree assaulting a police officer, possession of marijuana, menacing and third-degree criminal mischief.

Root said two deputies suffered minor injuries in the scuffle, which also resulted in damaged uniforms and equipment.

The girlfriend, Ada Nantz, 42, was also arrested since deputies determined she had struck Hoskins in the neck during the fight. She was charged with fourth-degree assault.

Both Hoskins and Nantz were jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Man arrested for animal cruelty

A Keavy man was arrested Tuesday after officers found he had several starving dogs and puppies, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Vincent E. Masur, 44, was arrested after Deputy Greg Turner, Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter and deputies  Robbie Grimes and Steve Hoskins were told several dogs were being starved to death on Earl Howard Road. When they arrived at the home, they found seven dogs belonging to Masur who had ribs visibly showing, two dogs with no water, and none of the seven dogs had any food. Two of the seven dogs were puppies and were found inside the residence with the mange.

Laurel County Animal Control personnel were called to the home and the seven dogs were removed. Masur  is charged with seven counts of second-degree cruelty to animals. He was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

W’burg police called to crash

A woman was airlifted to the University of Tennessee Medical Center after a head-on crash that happened about 1 a.m. Wednesday, according to Williamsburg Police Chief Wayne Bird.

The crash happened on North 11th Street when Glenn Wilmore Jr., of Wiliamsburg, was driving a 1998 Chevrolet truck south on the 11th Street and crossed into the northbound lane. Wilmore struck a 2000 Chrysler minivan driven by Patricia Moses.

Both Wilmore and Moses were injured. Wilmore was taken to Baptist Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Bird said drug or alcohol use are not suspected factors in the crash, which remains under investigation by his department.

Officer Brandon White responded. He was assisted by Kentucky State Police Trooper Tony Dingess along with members of the Williamsburg Fire Department and Whitley County EMS.
