Mother-daughter fight leads to arrest

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

An argument between a mother and her teenage daughter ended with the mother being arrested for child abuse.

Laurel Sheriff’s Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter went to Riverside Loop, five miles south of London, around 5:40 p.m. on Wednesday after receiving a call of a domestic dispute.

When he arrived at the scene, he found a 14-year-old girl with red marks and scratches on her body. The mother had left the scene. The two were allegedly arguing because the mother was drinking alcohol and the daughter wanted her to stop. The mother, 48-year-old Brenda R. Deaton of Lily, reportedly grabbed the child and left the red marks and scratches on her during the argument.

Poynter located Deaton several miles away and arrested her on charges of fourth-degree assault, child abuse. She was lodged in the Laurel Detention Center following her arrest.

 

Staggering drunk

Drunken man goes into traffic

The term “Staggering Drunk” took on a new meaning for Laurel Sheriff’s Deputy Robbie Grimes on Tuesday night after finding a man literally staggering along a southern Laurel roadway.

Grimes went to South Stewart Road, 13 miles south of London, around 7:15 p.m. Tuesday after a report of a man staggering around in traffic. Grimes’ investigation determined that 51-year-old Todd N. Pope of Lenior, North Carolina, was under the influence. He was arrested for alcohol intoxication and taken to the Laurel Detention Center.

 Pope was released from jail early Wednesday morning and set for a court date on Oct. 23. No bond was listed.
