Man arrested for domestic violence

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — With her face bruised and three young children in her care, a domestic violence victim sought help by going to the Laurel Dispatch Center Friday night.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Robbie Grimes and Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter arrived at the facility at 8:20 p.m. to find the woman with bruises on her face. She said her boyfriend had struck her in the head while she was holding the couple’s 3-month-old child. The woman said she tried to leave the residence with her three children — including the 3-month-old — while the man followed her to the vehicle, cursing and trying to grab her. The woman was successful in leaving and went immediately to the Dispatch Center to find help. She told deputies she was in fear for the safety of herself and the children.

Grimes and Poynter went to the residence on Cloud Lane, one-half mile west of London, and placed the man — 34-year-old Michael Grubb — under arrest when he came to the door. Grubb was believed to be under the influence of alcohol and instigated a struggle with the deputies by threatening them and screaming and yelling and causing a disturbance in the neighborhood. Grubb reportedly told deputies they did not want to be there, that he was a very powerful man, and that he was close personal friends with several elected officials in London.

Grubb was taken into custody and charged with fourth-degree assault - domestic violence, resisting arrest, and second-degree disorderly conduct. On Saturday, Grubb was served with an Emergency Protective Order.
