Disorderly conduct arrest on Hazel Patch Road

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Laurel County Sheriff’s Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter answered the call of a domestic dispute on Hazel Patch Road, eight miles north of London, last Friday night in which a male and female were fighting in a yard.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they found 39-year-old Jeffrey B. Whaley of Hazel Patch Road in East Bernstadt outside in the yard, screaming profanities at his girlfriend. As Poynter and Deputy Robbie Grimes investigated the incident, they determined Whaley was under the influence and placed him under arrest, charged with second-degree disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication.

The investigation further revealed a metal container with 10 prescription pills inside, adding a charge of prescription for a controlled substance not in its original container to Whaley’s offenses. He was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center following his arrest.

In another domestic incident on Sunday evening, Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Steve Hoskins, Deputy Jeff Blunschi and Kentucky State  Police Trooper Jack Riley responded to that incident in which 20-year-old Brandon Moore of East Ky. 3094 allegedly became involved in an argument with his mother at the Shell gas station on Ky. 490, three miles north of London, around 6 p.m. Before law enforcement officials reached the scene, Moore reportedly chased his mother from the Shell station to the Blue Moon Tattoo Parlor, a quarter-mile away. During the incident, Moore allegedly took his mother’s cell phone and hit her in the mouth.

Moore was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault, domestic violence and public intoxication. He was taken to the Laurel Detention Center after his arrest.
