CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Man charged with burglary, evading police

A deputy responding to a call about a home burglary Monday saw the suspected burglar try to flee in the homeowner’s Tracker, which he crashed and overturned within about a mile of the home, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Marlow P. Baker, 27, of London, was arrested after Deputy James Sizemore responded to a call about a burglary in process at a home located about two miles south of London.

Baker was charged with second-degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking and first-degree fleeing and evading police.

Baker was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Boyfriend arrested for creating a disturbance

A London man was arrested Monday for creating a disturbance at his girlfriend’s father’s home, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Before Jonathan B. Coupal, 40, was arrested, he had been separated from his girlfriend by deputies who responded that morning to a report of a domestic dispute. About 12:30 p.m., deputies again were called after Coupal reportedly went to his girlfriend’s father’s house.

Coupal was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Brother strikes brother with a stick

A London man was arrested after he reportedly struck his brother in the face with a stick, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Thomas S. Saylor, 37, was arrested by Deputy William Bo Harris on a charge of fourth-degree assault.

Saylor was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Meth lab report leads to arrests

Four people were arrested Saturday after a complaint was made about a possible methamphetamine lab on Star Hill Road, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter and deputies Robbie Grimes and Josh Scott responded about 7:45 p.m. and, when they arrived at the home, they saw a man trying to flee.

When captured, deputies learned William C. Califf, 33, had an outstanding arrest warrant. He was arrested and charged with public intoxication (controlled substances) and resisting arrest.

Another woman at the home also had an outstanding warrant. Lisa R. Downs, 48, of East Bernstadt, was charged with giving an officer a false name and two felony bench warrants — persistent felony offender and first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine).

Robert E. Brown, 30, of London, and William R. Warren, 52, of London, were arrested and each was charged with public intoxication (controlled substance).

All four were jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

London man arrested for trespassing

A London man was arrested Saturday after he failed to leave a home when asked, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Jonathon Brumagen, 21, was arrested and charged with second-degree criminal trespass.

Deputies William Bo Harris and John Inman responded about 7:15 a.m. to the complaint.

When told about earlier charges pressed against him, Root said Brumagen became “belligerent,” so he was charged with disorderly conduct and menacing as well as charged on bench warrants for theft by unlawful taking and second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Brumagen was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Man hospitalized after being stabbed

A man was airlifted to a Lexington hospital Saturday after he was stabbed and seriously wounded, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

The stabbing was reported about 9:30 p.m. and Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter and deputies Robbie Grimes, Kirk Mays and Brett Reeves responded to the area located about two miles south of London. They found the wounded man, who was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center.

Another man had left before deputies arrived and had yet to be questioned by officials, although it is believed that man argued with the victim and that led to the stabbing.

Detective Charlie Loomis continues the investigation.

Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County assisted at the scene.

Corbin man arrested for stabbing another man

A Corbin man was arrested Sunday after he reportedly cut another man’s neck with a knife while that man was driving, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Michael Alsip, 50, was charged with first-degree assault.

Root said Alsip was a passenger in the Chevrolet Tahoe driven by the victim about 5 a.m. The two argued and Alsip cut the victim’s neck. Alsip fled into a nearby woods but returned after deputies arrived.

Deputies Brett Reeves and Kirk Mays responded.

Alsip was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

A family member took the victim to Baptist Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Chief Deputy Eddy Sizemore assisted on the investigation. The investigation continues by Detective Daryl Zanet.

The victim remained hospitalized in fair condition late Tuesday, according to a hospital official.
