Times-Tribune Staff Report

Indecent exposure leads to arrest

A Manchester man was arrested Tuesday on indecent exposure charges after he allegedly exposed himself to a female and her teenage child at the spillway dam parking lot, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Parrott responded to a complaint that a man had exposed himself to a female victim and her children on Laurel Lake Road around 7:02 p.m. Tuesday evening.

When Parrott arrived at the parking lot, he learned from the victim that a man whom she did not know had pulled up in a car at the spillway dam parking lot, and had grabbed her inappropriately and made several sexually offensive remarks, the arrest report stated.

Additionally it was alleged that he exposed his genitals to her.

R.B. Mitchell, 58, of Manchester, continued to make sexual advances toward her. Only after she said she had a weapon and told him to get away did he pull to the other end of the parking lot, according to the sheriff’s report.

Parrott found Mitchell sitting in his vehicle in the parking lot. Mitchell told the deputy that he did in fact grab the female, and was “trying to pick her up for a good time.”

Mitchell was arrested and charged with third-degree sexual abuse and second-degree indecent exposure. He was transported to the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Corbin man arrested for filing a false report

A Corbin man was arrested for filing a false report and public intoxication Tuesday night, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Scott, along with Deputy Larry Parrott, responded to a complaint that Roy J. Rosan, 51, of Corbin, had been beaten up by his nephew at a residence on Robinson Creek Road.

When deputies arrived around 10:30 p.m., they learned from other family members that the person saying he had been beat up was intoxicated and was the one creating the disturbance, according to the sheriff’s report.

Deputy Scott found Rosan in a briar thicket behind the residence and arrested him. He was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place and falsely reporting an incident. He was transported to the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Whitley County man arrested for wanton endangerment

A Whitley County man was arrested Tuesday on wanton endangerment charges for allegedly chasing another man through a field with a pistol in the Coal Stone Community.

After receiving the complaint and arriving on the scene, Whitley County Deputy Brian Lawson found  Justice D. King, 72, walking down Highway 904 with a gun in his hand.

King threw the pistol over the hill when he spotted the deputy. Lawson began giving King verbal commands to show his hands. King did not comply with deputy’s commands, which garnered him a resisting arrest charge in addition to the first-degree wanton endangerment charge.

Through investigation, Lawson learned that King had chased the male victim to a nearby house where he had also “waved” the pistol at them and their children as well.

Lawson was assisted by Lt. Milard Root and the Patterson Creek Fire Department in recovering the pistol, which was found.
