Felony Warrants Also Served
Darren Doyle, story:
A Smiths Grove man was arrested Thursday evening after a domestic incident where law enforcement said he tried to hide, but a fall from an attic ladder ended his escape attempt.
According to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, a deputy was dispatched to the 10,000 block of Brownsville Road for a domestic disturbance around 6PM on January 20, 2022. The female party stated to law enforcement that the male suspect, identified as Jonathan S. Sparks (46) of Smiths Grove, had physically assaulted her before she left the scene to escape further abuse, the Sheriff's Office stated.
When law enforcement arrived, Sparks reportedly answered the door, but then allegedly fled further into the residence. The Sheriff's Office said that a deputy was able to detain Sparks without further incident after he fell from an attic ladder while attempting to hide from police.
Sparks was charged with:
Three active Edmonson County Bench Warrants and two active Warren County Bench Warrants were also served on Sparks. All were for Failure to Appear on charges that ranged from Alcohol Intoxication in a Public Place to Fleeing or Evading Police with felony drug charges.
Sparks was lodged in Hart County Jail. The Edmonson County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Kentucky State Police.
