Intoxicated woman arrested


A southern Laurel woman was arrested for wanton endangerment after she was discovered to be incapable of caring for her elderly mother.

The events leading to the arrest of 53-year-old Carol LeQuire of North Ky. 1223 in Corbin evolved when Laurel Court Bailiffs Brandon Broughton and Cody Faulconer went to the residence to serve a Laurel Circuit Court writ of possession. On their arrival, they noticed LeQuire was under the influence of alcohol and was trying to care for her elderly mother, who is bedridden.

The bailiffs contacted the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office, with Deputy Robbie Grimes and Deputy Larry Parrott going to the residence. They placed LeQuire under arrest on charges of alcohol intoxication and second-degree wanton endangerment. The Cabinet for Families and Children was contacted and representatives arrived to assist with the care of the elderly mother.

LeQuire was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center following her arrest.
