Laurel County Sheriff’s deputies say a Corbin man was under the influence of alcohol when he attempted to enter a residence on Byrley Road early Sunday morning.
Deputies arrested Chad Moore, 38, of Corbin outside the residence off of South Stewart Road at approximately 12:25 a.m.
Deputy Gilbert Acciardo, the department’s public affairs officer, said deputies were called to the scene after the residents reported an individual attempting to open a door to get inside, while yelling and screaming.
“When we got there, he saw the deputies and took off,” Acciardo said of Moore adding that a short foot pursuit ensued before the officers took him into custody.
Even after he was in custody, Acciardo said Moore continued to struggle, attempting to head butt the deputies and banging his head on the back of the cruiser.
“All those red marks in his mugshot were from him intentionally hitting his head on the cruiser,” Acciardo said.
Acciardo said deputies reported smelling alcohol on Moore, leading to the charge of alcohol intoxication in a public place.
“We don’t know if he may have mixed other stuff with the alcohol,” Acciardo said of Moore.
Acciardo said Moore did not know the residents and he did not tell officers why he was attempting to get inside the residence.
Moore was also charged with second-degree disorderly conduct, first-degree fleeing or evading police – on foot, and resisting arrest.
Moore is being held in the Laurel County Correctional Facility on a $2,500 cash bond.
He is scheduled to return to Laurel District Court for a preliminary hearing to determine whether there is probable cause to present the case to a Laurel County grand jury.
