CORBIN — East Bernstadt man arrested for two separate charges

A complaint of an alleged assault of a woman found Sheriff’s Deputies arresting a man for assault and a separate warrant Monday afternoon.

Jonathan Coots, 25, of Farris Jones Road, East Bernstadt, was charged with fourth-degree assault - domestic violence, as well as charged on a child support warrant.

He’s jailed in the Laurel County Detention facility.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root reported the arrest came Monday at around 3:23 p.m., off Farris Jones Road, approximately 11 miles north of London.

Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter and Deputies Larry Parrot and Daniel Grigsby were sent to the East Bernstadt area after receiving a complaint that a man had allegedly assaulted his girlfriend and threatened her with a knife. When they arrived at the scene, deputies learned that a woman had observed her boyfriend with a needle in his arm shooting up pain medicine, and that he had allegedly pushed her down and threatened her, throwing her stuff onto their porch and telling her to leave.
