LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
A dispute that continued over a two-day period ended with the arrest of the male involved in the argument.
James Nicholson, 46, of Sinking Creek Road in London, was taken into custody on Sunday just before 7 p.m. The arrest occurred at Nicholson’s residence, seven miles west of London, after Laurel Sheriff’s Deputies Larry Parrott and Tyler Morris were called to the scene of a domestic situation in the front yard.
This was the second time in two days that Parrott had responded to a domestic complaint at that residence, having been called out the day prior. However, that time Nicholson fled the scene and could not be located.
It was a similar situation on Sunday, with Nicholson attempting to flee the scene before police arrived. But despite a brief struggle with deputies, he was taken into custody although he did try to kick Parrott several times and began screaming loudly and causing a disturbance in the area. Nicholson, according to the press release from the Laurel Sheriff’s Office, continued to be belligerent and disruptive while en route to the jail.
Nicholson is charged with fourth-degree assault, minor injury; resisting arrest, second-degree disorderly conduct, and public intoxication. He was also served with a warrant of third-degree terroristic threatening. Nicholson was lodged in the Laurel Detention Center where he remains under a $1,000 surety bond on one charge and $2,500 cash bond on the other charges.
