The following narratives are compiled from reports provided by Lyon County Sheriff Brent White:
• Dec. 19 -- A local man was jailed last week after wrecking along U.S. 641 in Lyon County and being charged with DUI.
Logan T. Akridge, 32, of Eddyville was taken into custody just after 10 p.m. Thursday after Deputy Seth P'Pool arrived at the scene of a single-vehicle crash near the intersection of Ky. 1943. According to a report, when the officer arrived, Akridge was staggering away from the location of the black Chevy Tahoe he wrecked in the front yard of a residence. P'Pool said he detected an odor of alcohol, and the suspect admitted that "he had a few too many."
After failing to complete a field sobriety test, Akridge was placed in P'Pool's cruiser, where he promptly fell asleep, per the deputy's report.
No one else was believed to be with Akridge at the time of the alleged offense.
Akridge was jailed in Crittenden County Detention Center.
• Dec. 16: Gerald Glenn Cotton, 62, of Eddyville was arrested last week on charges of fourth-degree assault related to domestic violence and first-degree unlawful imprisonment. The assault reportedly occurred five days prior at Cotton's home against a female with whom he had reportedly been in a relationship. Cotton and multiple others were accused.
The accuser, Stephanie Miles, reports she was invited to the residence on Mayhugh Road to pick up her belongings left there. Once there, she claims she was berated by Cotton and assaulted, then held down by the man "while others assaulted her." She was allegedly kicked and punched and a chair was broken over her before she was able to flee on her own.
The arresting officer, Deputy Joe Witherspoon, reports Miles' injuries were consistent with the claim; however, she refused treatment.
Cotton was taken into custody at his home on Dec. 16.
