Three people were arrested in three separate incidents last Saturday in Laurel County, according to Sheriff John Root.
The first came at 3:50 p.m. when Deputy Robbie Grimes and Deputy Josh Scott responded to a disturbance complaint on Chaney Ridge Road, four miles south of London.
When the deputies arrived, they learned a woman was destroying property, appeared to be under the influence, and was a danger to herself.
Regina L. Napier, 47, of Chaney Ridge Road in London, was arrested and charged with public intoxication-controlled substances.
The second incident was reported Saturday evening at 6:20 p.m. when Grimes investigated a domestic violence complaint at apartments off American Greeting Road in North Corbin, 12 miles south of London.
James Felts, 25, of Keavy Craigs Creek Road, Keavy, was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence). Felts allegedly argued with his girlfriend over respect, pulled her hair and threw things at her. He was also charged on a bench warrant each from Laurel County and Knox County.
The final incident occurred at 7:30 p.m. when Grimes was dispatched to a domestic assault in progress one mile east of London on Payten Lane. When he arrived, Grimes conducted an investigation and learned that a woman had gotten into an altercation with her husband, had bitten him and beat him up. In addition, deputies overheard her threaten to beat him up and burn down the house. When she was arrested, the woman fought with deputies and had to be carried to the police cruiser.
Linda Eversole, 61, of Payten Lane in London, was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence), terroristic threatening, resisting arrest and public intoxication-controlled substances.
