Man nabbed for chasing with hatchet

A London man was arrested on multiple charges, including terroristic threatening, after he allegedly chased a family member with a hatchet, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Several deputies responded to a home on Fariston Road about 12:20 p.m. Wednesday after receiving a complaint that a man was chasing his sister with a hatchet, according to the sheriff’s report.

When deputies arrived at the home, Charles Ray Perkins, 29, ran back inside the residence. Deputies were able to get him to come outside where they conducted an investigation and determined Perkins was intoxicated. Following a brief struggle, Perkins was arrested and charged with alcohol intoxication, terroristic threatening and resisting arrest. Perkins told deputies he was going to “kill his sister, and burn down the residence” the arrest report said. Perkins was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Deputies Tyler Morris along with Deputy John Inman and Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter responded to the call.

Lily man charged with domestic violence

A Lily man was arrested and charged with domestic violence Tuesday afternoon, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Laurel Sheriff’s Deputy Robbie Grimes along with Sgt. Josh Gaylor were dispatched about 2:30 p.m. to a domestic dispute on Jim Maggard Road.  After arriving at the residence, deputies learned that Samuel M. Clontz, 25, of Lily, had allegedly grabbed a female in a choke hold, hurting her neck. Clontz was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence) and second-degree disorderly conduct. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Williamsburg man arrested for theft

A Williamsburg man was arrested for stealing a four-wheeler, according to Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell.

On July 27, Whitley County Sheriff’s Deputy Ken Shepherd received a complaint of a stolen four-wheeler. The owner reported his four-wheeler had been stolen and he had no information as to who could have taken it.

 On July 30, the owner was contacted by a friend who said he had seen a four-wheeler which may be the one stolen. Deputy John Hill was dispatched to a residence on Marie Circle, where he found the stolen four-wheeler in the possession of Anthony Senters, 22, of Williamsburg. Senters was charged with receiving stolen property under $10,000 and was jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center.

Senters had removed racks and mud flaps from the four-wheeler to disguise it, according to the sheriff’s report. Deputy Hill recovered the racks and flaps at another location on Plum Lane, in the Canadatown community of Whitley County.

Lt. Millard Root, Deputy Brian Lawson and Deputy Joe Prewitt assisted at the scene.

Two arrested for vehicle theft

Two Gray residents were arrested for vehicle theft, according to Knox County Sheriff John Pickard.

About 10 a.m. Sunday, Knox County Sheriff’s Deputy Hudson responded to a residence on Hwy. 1232 in Gray to take a report of a stolen vehicle.  

Later that day, around 5 p.m. while traveling on Hwy. 1803 in the Cranesnest area, Hudson saw two individuals he recognized as Garfield Cox, 33, and Brooke Mason, 32, both of Gray. Cox was laying on the highway bleeding, according to the sheriff’s report.

Cox and Mason told Hudson they had been in an accident and were walking to Cox’ uncle’s residence. While on the scene, Hudson received information from a passing motorist of a wreck about a mile down the road. As the investigation continued, the wrecked vehicle was identified as being the one reported stolen earlier that day.

Cox and Mason were arrested and charged with theft by unlawful taking of an automobile, first-degree criminal mischief and leaving the scene of an accident. Both were jailed in the Knox County Detention Center.

Hudson was assisted on the scene by Sheriff John Pickard and Roy Gambrel.
