What started off as an alleged domestic dispute in the early hours of the morning Tuesday led to the arrest of three men, two of them convicted felons.
Owenton Police Officer Tony Stigers said the Owen County Sheriff’s Office was called to 376 Divided Ridge Road at about 1:17 a.m. for a domestic dispute in progress.
The suspect, Joseph Lamonte Richardson, 25, allegedly had a pistol and knife in his possession.
“Anytime there’s a situation like that all available units head in that direction for officer safety,” Stigers said.
Stigers was requested for backup.
