Laurel couple jailed for domestic dispute

Officers injured during arrest

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A domestic dispute became violent for not only the two persons involved but for Laurel County Sheriff’s deputies who arrived to settle the dispute.

The call of a dispute on Maple Grove Road, five miles west of London,  just before 9 p.m. Monday sent deputies to the residence where they could hear a couple screaming at one another. The deputies went inside the home where they found broken glass from a TV on the floor.

The investigation revealed 38-year-old Emanuel Hoskins had struck 42-year-old Ada Nantz in the face and caused an injury near her eye. As Deputies Steve Hoskins and Josh Scott  placed Hoskins under arrest, he became combative and stated he was not going to jail. The arrival of Deputy Greg Turner gave law enforcement the upper hand against the irate Hoskins and he was taken into custody, charged with fourth-degree assault, resisting arrest, third-degree assault against a police officer, possession of marijuana, menacing, and third-degree criminal mischief. Hoskins damaged the uniforms and equipment worn by Hoskins and Scott as they tried to apprehend him to place him under arrest, resulting in the criminal mischief, third-degree assault and resisting arrest charges.

The two deputies also received minor injuries during the scuffle with Hoskins.

Nantz was also placed under arrest after it was determined she had also struck Hoskins in the neck during the dispute. She is charged with fourth-degree assault, domestic violence.

Hoskins is held in Laurel County Detention Center under a $2,500 cash bond and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Laurel District Court on Oct. 2. Nantz posted a $2,500 surety bond on Tuesday and is scheduled for a pretrial conference on Oct. 23.
