CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Fraudulent prescription arrest made

A Manchester woman was arrested Wednesday after officers were told she was using fraudulent prescriptions, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Leslie H. Hooker, 37, was charged with obtaining or attempting to obtain a controlled substance by fraud or deceit. She was jailed in the Laurel County Corrections Center.

Man seriously injured in fight; missing equipment found

A Gray man was arrested Wednesday after he beat a man so badly he requires surgery, according to Knox County Sheriff John Pickard.

Hilt Bryant, also known as Amom Garland, 52, was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault, although Pickard said that charge will likely be upgraded to first-degree assault due to the extensive injuries the victim suffered.

The arrest came after deputies Adam Townsley and Keith Liford responded to a report of a fight between two men along Garland Cemetery Road. When they arrived, Bryant had fled.

The victim was airlifted to the hospital. The deputies later located and arrested Garland, who is jailed in the Knox County Detention Center.

Bryant also faces charges in connection with the 2008 theft of a skid-steer from a construction company that was working at Girdler Elementary.

Townsley got a tip that the equipment was at Bryant’s home, located off Garland Cemetery Road in Gray.

After getting consent to search the property, the skid-steer was located.

Bryant was charged with receiving stolen property over $10,000 and obscuring the identity of a machine.

Bryant’s bail is set at $100,000 cash.
