LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — On Tuesday afternoon, Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputies Steve Hoskins and Greg Turner arrested 25-year-old Brandon Collier of East Ky. 1376 in East Bernstadt.

The arrest came after the deputies responded to a call in which a male subject was inside a residence on Ky. 1376, five miles north of London in the East Bernstadt area, and was refusing to leave. When deputies got to the scene, they found Collier standing beside the roadway and appeared to be very intoxicated on drugs. Deputies found marijuana on his person at the time of his arrest. The Sheriff’s Office press release states Collier had gold spray paint on his face and chest at the time he was arrested.

Collier was housed in the Laurel County Detention Center.
