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.
