Police Roundup - June 10, 2014

CORBIN — CORRECTION — Published June 12, 2014 — A police roundup story that appeared on Page 3 of the Tuesday, June 10, edition of the Times-Tribune about the arrest of a man with two warrants contained an error. The story should have said Jonathan Proffitt was arrested by Deputy Tyler Morris on a circuit court warrant of arrest on an indictment charging theft of identity of another without consent, second-degree forgery and operating a motor vehicle under the influence. Proffitt was also charged on a warrant of arrest for failure to appear in court after allegedly cutting off his bracelet and escaping from home incarceration March 9. The Times-Tribune regrets the error.

Handgun found on intoxicated man

A man creating a disturbance at a gas station was found to have a handgun in his pocket Saturday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputy Larry Parrott responded to the complaint about 11 miles south of London where he found Shawn Smallwood, 36, of Corbin, to be under the influence.  In addition to the handgun, Smallwood possessed marijuana.

Smallwood was charged with public intoxication - controlled substances, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of marijuana.  He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Arrest following fight complaint

Deputies arrested a man they found staggering down the road Friday night, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputies Robbie Grimes and Larry Parrott along with Constable Keith Dinsmore arrested Jeremy Jones, 27, of London, while responding to a fight complaint.  As deputies arrived on the scene they saw Jones staggering down the roadway.

They determined that Jones was under the influence and one of the subjects involved in the fight complaint they were responding to.

Jones was charged with public intoxication of controlled substances and jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

DUI, disorderly conduct arrests at traffic checkpoint

A black Cadillac came to a screeching halt on the wrong side of the road at a traffic safety checkpoint Saturday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputy Mikey Ashurst was conducting a traffic safety checkpoint around 1:30 a.m. when the Cadillac came around a curve on the wrong side of the road and squealed to a stop.  Deputies smelled alcohol coming from the vehicle and determined both the driver and passenger to be under the influence.

The driver, Amber Allen, 32, of Corbin, was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence and reckless driving.  The passenger, Dennis Young Jr., 34, of Williamsburg, was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place and second-degree disorderly conduct.

Young refused to exit the vehicle and started cursing deputies, Root said. The cursing continued while he was being transported to jail.

Allen and Young were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
