CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Two arrested after domestic violence complaint

A Corbin man and woman were arrested Sunday following a domestic violence complaint, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Robert C. Mills, 28, was standing outside of a house and was, according to Root, obviously under the influence. Mills was arrested by deputies Larry Parrott, Daniel Grigsby, and Tyler Morris.

Deputies then attempted to get someone to answer the door to the house. A woman finally came to the door with a large cut on her arm. Deputies notified Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County to transport the woman to St. Joseph London. It was later discovered that the woman allegedly threw a fit and ran her arm through a glass window, Root said. The cut was not a result of domestic violence.

Adrienne Baker, 20, was discovered hiding in a closet without a door as deputies further investigated the house. Baker was wanted for outstanding warrants in Laurel County, allegedly stealing a GPS from a vehicle and pawning it as well as allegedly stealing a breaker box and some wiring from a storage building and taking it to a business for a cash refund.

The house had no electricity and did not appear to be lived in. Needles were found laying inside, and it was owned by someone who wasn’t present at the time.

Mills was charged with public intoxication--controlled substances. Baker was charged on two outstanding arrest warrants from Laurel County for receiving stolen property. Both Mills and Baker were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

An investigation continues.

Man arrested on warrant for assault

A  London man charged with multiple outstanding warrants was arrested in East Bernstadt Saturday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Harold Gaines, 29, was wanted for an October assault on a woman in northeastern Laurel County. She reportedly observed a suspicious black pickup truck setting behind her mother’s house; the vehicle sped away, but she followed it for a distance. Gaines then allegedly got out of the vehicle and dragged the woman out of her vehicle and assaulted her. The woman was able to tape the incident.

The assault was investigated by detectives Charlie Loomis and Jason Back, as well as Deputy James Sizemore. Gaines was identified, but continued to evade authorities.

On Saturday night the sheriff’s office received information on Gaines’ possible whereabouts in a mobile home in East Bernstadt. Deputies Robbie Grimes, Larry Parrott, and Daniel Grigsby arrived at the location and parked their patrol cars at a distance. They surprised Grimes, who was sitting in the living room, and arrested him without incident.

Gaines was charged on an outstanding Laurel County arrest warrant for fourth-degree assault as well as four other outstanding warrants from Whitley County. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Man arrested on two outstanding warrants

A London man was arrested Saturday for two outstanding warrants, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

James G. Egner Jr., 40, was arrested by Deputy Larry Parrott and charged with a Knox County arrest warrant for flagrant non-support and a probation violation warrant for absconding parole supervision. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Keavy man arrested

A Keavy man was arrested Saturday on an outstanding warrant, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Anthony D. Frazier, 24, was arrested by Deputy Larry Parrott and charged with three outstanding Laurel County warrants that included fourth-degree assault, harassment, and failure to appear in court. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Woman arrested for shoplifting

A Pine Knot woman was arrested Saturday for shoplifting at a Walmart in southern Laurel County, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Bobbi L. Worley, 22, was detained by Walmart’s loss prevention team after allegedly hiding several items of clothing in her purse and putting on several shirts and a jacket. She attempted to leave the store without paying for any of the items, Root said.

Worley was arrested by Deputy Kevin Berry and charged with shoplifting. She was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
