Mayfield Man Faces Assault, Other Charges
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MAYFIELD, KY - A man faces a list of charges after an altercation at a Mayfield home.
The Mayfield Police Department says officers responded shortly after 4:00 p.m. Saturday to a report of an assault on Skylark Drive, where they found George Lewis, who was bleeding from his left temple.
Lewis told officers that 25-year-old Trevor Taylor had entered his home uninvited and struck him with brass knuckles. Lewis also said that Taylor caused several thousand dollars worth of damage to his property by kicking the back doors, throwing the brass knuckles at the back door window, kicking the railing on the back stairs, and damaging a vehicle in the drive way. Taylor then fled the scene.
An officer later made contact with Taylor on Paris Road, but Taylor advanced towards him in a threatening manner. The officer hit Taylor with his baton, but Taylor continued to fight. Taylor was eventually placed in handcuffs with the assistance of some pedestrians.
Taylor was charged with assault 2nd, assault 3rd-police officer, burglary, criminal mischief, tampering with physical evidence and resisting arrest.
He was booked into the Graves County Jail.
