Laurel County, KY - Sheriff John Root is reporting that Sgt. Larry Parrott arrested Ricky Collins, age 55, of Copley Rd., Corbin early Friday morning, October 16, 2015, at approximately 3:58 AM.

Ricky Collins was charged with assault – fourth degree – domestic violence and disorderly conduct – second-degree and was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
