Police Roundup


CORBIN — Laurel man jailed on two bench warrants

A Laurel County man was arrested early Sunday afternoon on two bench warrants — each with a different charge.

Eddie Gilliam, 49, of McWorter Road, London, was charged with fourth-degree assault from one of the bench warrants, and with third-degree terroristic threatening on the other bench warrant.

He was jailed in the Laurel County Detention Facility in London.

The arrest occurred around 12:48 p.m. Sunday on Delmas Gilliam Road, approximately three miles east of London.

Colorado man nabbed for public intoxication, disorderly conduct

The quiet of a Saturday afternoon was shattered in Laurel County when a man created a disturbance. In turn, sheriff’s deputies arrested a Colorado man on two charges.

Jesse Lane, 61, of Littleton, Colo., was charged with second-degree disorderly conduct and public intoxication — controlled substances.

He’s jailed in the Laurel County Detention Facility in London.

The arrest came around 3:37 p.m. Saturday, on Hanes Baker Road, approximately nine miles south of London.

According to the Laurel County Sheriff’s Department, Deputy Larry Parrott was sent to a complaint of a man on private property creating a disturbance, by allegedly yelling, screaming and jumping up and down on the property.

When Parrott arrived, he located Lane and determined that he was intoxicated, and was a danger to himself and others around him. Lane was then arrested.

Husband and wife arrested near Keavy for assault

A domestic violence complaint led sheriff’s deputies to arrest a Laurel County man and woman on assault charges, during the midday hour Sunday.

Gene Lawhorn, 44, and his wife, Barbara Lawhorn, 53, both of Keavy Road, were each charged with fourth-degree assault.

They were both jailed in the Laurel County Detention Facility.

The arrests happened Sunday around 12:01 p.m. on Keavy Road, approximately five miles west of London.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root reported the arrests came after Deputies Shane Rice and Kevin Berry were dispatched to a complaint of domestic violence in the area. When they arrived, the deputies learned that there allegedly had been an argument over money, and that the husband and wife had gotten into a physical altercation.

A primary aggressor could not be determined.
