Woman Arrested After Walking In Roadway With Child

Posted: Updated:

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)-- A woman was arrested Monday after police say she was walking in the middle of the roadway with her child. 

It happened around 9:34 p.m. on East Laurel Road when deputies were dispatched to a possible domestic dispute

While en route to the scene deputies encountered Alesha Wagers, 33, of London, with a child walking in the middle of the roadway that had apparently been involved in the domestic dispute.

Officials say Wagers refused deputies commands to get the child out of harms way and following a short scuffle with deputies was taken into custody. Deputies proceeded to the scene of the complaint making contact with the grandparents and learned that they had temporary custody of the child and that Wagers had left the residence with the child without proper authorization. In addition they learned that Wagers had smoked marijuana and used Roxy's earlier in the day. Also, the female subject had outstanding warrants.

Wagers was charged with first-degree criminal abuse, felony custodial interference, second-degree disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.

In addition, Wagers was charged on a Laurel District Court warrant of arrest charging theft by unlawful taking – shoplifting; a Laurel Circuit Court indictment warrant of arrest charging flagrant nonsupport; and a Laurel District Court bench warrant of arrest charging failure to appear in court.

This individual was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.

    The StormTracker threat index remains at 1 Tuesday, a slight risk. More accumulating snow will lead to slick, snow covered roads and potentially hazardous driving conditions- use caution on your commute. Much colder air tracked in overnight behind an Arctic front and with moisture still streaming northeast higher snow ratios will lead to more snow mainly in the morning in the Bluegrass and shifting southeast later in the day. We've tweaked forecast snow totals slightly from yesterday:...
