The injuries inflicted were not serious, but Hopkinsville Police arrested a woman early this morning charged with stabbing a man in a domestic assault.
The incident happened around 12:50 at 1848 Greenville Road, Apartment C—according to the arrest card—which says a male victim said 28-year old Ashley Winston of Hopkinsville had stabbed him with a knife in the left temple.
Officer Patricia Alexander writes the victim was bleeding from a small cut on the left temple and Winston was arrested and charged with 2nd degree domestic assault and was lodged in the Christian County Jail.
Kentucky State Police are investigating a shooting incident in the county from last night.
A KSP dispatcher could not give many details, but said troopers remained on the scene of the incident—which is somewhere on Gospel of Peace Road. Hopkinsville Police Officer Roger Stephens said city police responded to Jennie Stuart Medical Center late in the evening after a man drove himself there with a gunshot wound to the neck.
Police believe the shot was fired by the man’s son and the victim is now at a Nashville hospital, believed to be in critical condition.
The dispatcher said he expects more information on the incident to be released later this morning.
A Hopkinsville woman was arrested at a W. 7th Street bar early this morning for allegedly exposing her buttocks while dancing for another patron.
The arrest card says police performed a “walk through” at the “UR” Bar just before 1am and allegedly found 23-year old Kayla Austin of Hopkinsville giving a lap dance for a man.
Austin had allegedly exposed her buttocks and was allowing a second male patron to use a marker to sign his name on them. Police say Austin was very intoxicated and that her actions caused others in the bar to become hostile with police.
Austin was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, performing nude activities and being drunk in public.
The manager of the bar, 35-year old April Sunshine Dugger of Hopkinsville, was cited for permitting nude activities.
A Greenville man was cited to appear in court after he was involved in a wreck early this morning.
According to Kentucky State Police, 29-year old Thomas Blyler was cited to appear in court for operating a commercial motor vehicle without a commercial driving license, operating a commercial motor vehicle without periodic inspection and not having a fire extinguisher.
State police say the 29-year old was illegally operating a dump truck and was driving eastbound on U.S. 62 about 5 miles east of Dawson Springs when the passenger side tires dropped off the eastbound shoulder of the roadway.
According to police, Blyler attempted to steer the vehicle back onto the roadway, but overcorrected and lost control.
The Greenville man reportedly sustained non-life threatening injuries as a result of the wreck and was transported by ambulance to the Regional Medical Center for treatment.
Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Spokesman Keith Todd says state officials have recently talked to several ferry companies about the kinds of services they can provide to transport traffic across Kentucky as crews continue to excavate and eventually repair Eggners Ferry Bridge.
According to Todd, plans to provide a ferry service is still in the early stages, but state officials plan to bid the contract out.
The transportation official says before state officials can move forward with plans to provide a ferry service across Kentucky Lake, engineering and environmental concerns have to be answered first.
Progress continues to be made at Eggners Ferry Bridge as crews continue to remove debris from the bridge that fell into the water after an ocean going vessel, the Delta Mariner crashed into the bridge, which knocked off one the bridge’s spans.
