Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Robbie Grimes along with Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter, Deputy Larry Parrott, and Detective Josh Scott arrested Lloyd Overbay, 68, of Winding Blade Road, East Bernstadt, on Saturday, March 22 at 2:55 p.m.

The arrest occurred on Winding Blade Road, approximately 12 miles north of London, after deputies responded to a complaint of an armed man who was making threats. When deputies arrived at the scene, they determined the complaint was the result of a land dispute.

While deputies were at the scene investigating, they learned that a male subject located there had an outstanding warrant. Overbay was charged on an outstanding  Laurel County bench warrant of arrest charging third-degree terroristic threatening. He was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
