LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
Following a domestic violence complaint at the same residence the day before, Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Scott responded to a trespassing complaint on Saturday, May 18 at 11:20 a.m. on Robinson Creek Road, seven miles south of London.
Terry W. Mullis, 30, of Burk Hart Hollow Road, Woodbine, was arrested and charged with third-degree criminal trespassing, resisting arrest, and public intoxication-controlled substances. He was also wanted by Laurel District Court on two outstanding bench warrants for third-degree possession of a controlled substance and possessing drug paraphernalia. Additionally, he was wanted on a Knox County bench warrant for second-degree fleeing and evading police on foot.
On Friday evening, Mullis had allegedly body slammed his ex-girlfriend, assaulted her mother, and struck the family pet, and ran off before law enforcement arrived on the 9-1-1 call for help. Even though Mullis was told to not to return to the property on Robinson Creek Road, he was found the next day under the victim’s house. When deputies arrived at the scene Saturday, they located Mullis hiding in a blanket under the victim’s house in a crawl space area. When arrested, Mullis briefly struggled with deputies. He was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
Assisting on the arrest and investigation were Lt. Chuck Johnson, Deputy John Inman, Deputy Shawn Boroviak, Deputy Kevin Berry, Deputy Mikey Ashurst, and Constable Charlie Johnson.
