Three arrested after complaint of fight

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Mikey Ashurst was dispatched to a possible fight in progress complaint at Corbin Manor Apartments, eight miles south of London, early Thursday, Jan. 2 at 2:13 a.m.

Prior to arrival at the scene, a vehicle, which was described as a grey Nissan Maxima, was given by Laurel 9-11- Dispatch and, as Deputy Ashurst pulled into the parking lot, he observed the suspect vehicle backing into a parking spot, and he initiated an investigation.

Ashurst questioned two subjects who had been in the grey Nissan Maxima. They had abandoned their car, but were found hiding in a closet of a nearby apartment. Both were determined to be under the influence and were arrested.

Billy L. Rediker, 42, of Balsinger Street, London, was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence; driving on a DUI suspended license, first offense; and other traffic violations; Tina L. Lewis, 36, of Corbin Manor Apartments, Corbin, was charged with: public intoxication- controlled substance (a white powdery residue was found around her nostrils), and second-degree disorderly conduct. She also was charged on an outstanding Laurel County bench warrant for failure to appear in court.

Around the same time, Laurel 9-1-1 dispatch received another call about a male subject who was fleeing one of the apartments where the fight was reported to have occurred. As Deputy Ashurst was trying to locate the man, a woman came out of one of the apartments, advising him that a person she did not know was in her kitchen, washing blood off himself.

George A. Snelson, 42, of Oak Ridge Church Road, Corbin, was arrested and charged with alcohol intoxication; second-degree disorderly conduct; and resisting arrest.

Deputy Ashurst saw that Snelson was transported to Baptist Hospital for possible treatment. However, he tried to run away from the hospital several times while being treated.

All three subjects were lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.

Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County assisted Deputy Ashurst at the scene.
