Man harasses female customers

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A southern Laurel man was arrested after he reportedly harassed female customers at a gas station in the Lily community.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Parrott and Deputy Daniel Grigsby responded to the complaint that a man was trying to get female customers at House’s Liberty Station on U.S. 25 to give him money. The man, identified as 24-year-old Willie Hubbard of Line Creek Road in Lily, had reportedly been asked to leave the premises but had not done so.

When the deputies arrived at the scene, they witnessed Hubbard trying to get money from a female who was in the parking lot of the business. Hubbard had an odor of alcohol and when deputies questioned him, he denied being under the influence. Instead, he said his father had been drinking and he had spilled some beer on him.

That story didn’t hold up for the deputies, who placed Hubbard under arrest for third-degree criminal trespassing and alcohol intoxication. Hubbard was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center where he was held under a $1,000 unsecured bond and scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, Jan. 7.
