Drunken ex tries to break in on woman

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

A woman called the Laurel County Sheriff's Office early Thursday morning after hearing a loud thud of someone kicking her door.

The incident took place around 3:30 a.m. on Haley Ridge Road, four miles north of London, when the woman said her ex-husband was intoxicated and trying to kick in her front door. As Deputy Josh Scott went to the scene, the woman called a second time to say the man was kicking her door again, as if trying to gain entry into her home.

On arriving at the residence, Scott found the man — John E. Osborne, 51, of Ky. 490 in East Bernstadt — hiding behind a trailer hitch on the residence. Foot prints were found on the front door.

Osborne was arrested on charges of second-degree burglary and alcohol intoxication in a public place. He was taken to the Laurel County Detention Center following his arrest. Osborne reportedly told Scott he was trying to get inside the residence to ask his ex-wife to reconcile.
