LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A Laurel County man attacked two people then tried to run them and a small child over with a car, officials said.

Authorities arrested 26-year-old Brandon Mills of Corbin on Friday night.

The Laurel County Sheriff’s Department said it deputies were called out to an assault claim and found a man and his daughter with injuries.

Officials said Mills had assaulted the daughter, who said she had been punched, slapped, choked and head-butted. Police say Mills tried to run over the man, his daughter and her child.
