ACSO: Deputy injured after altercation with multiple suspects
By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office
On Thursday, December 24, 2020, at 11pmCT, Deputy Sheriff Josh Durbin responded to a residence off Royal Oaks drive 6 miles east of Columbia. The original call was a reported domestic violence incident where a female had been assaulted.
Deputy Durbin responded alone, as no other additional units were available in the county. Upon arrival, Durbin began to try and defuse the situation. Once he determined an arrest was necessary, Deputy Durbin attempted to take a male suspect into custody.
An altercation broke out between them, and Deputy Durbin deployed his taser. Deputy Durbin stated at that time that he was assaulted by another member of the family. Deputy Durbin stated that he was knocked to ground, and both suspects assaulted him, stating at one point that they were trying to disarm him.
Deputy Durbin was able to get one radio transmission out for help, and multiple units, on duty and off duty at home, headed to the scene to assist.
Additional personel from the Adair County Sheriff's Office, Columbia Police Department, Kentucky State Police, Russell County Sheriff's Office, Adair County EMS, and Columbia Adair County Fire Department responded.
Arrested was Lonnie Taylor, 41, on charges of assault 3rd, assault 4th, disorderly conduct 2nd, resisting arrest, alcohol intoxication in a public place, criminal mischief,strangulation 1st degree and attempting to disarm a police officer.
Robert Maynard, 35, was charged with assault 3rd degree, terroristic threatening, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, attempting to disarm a police officer, criminal mischief and alcohol intoxication.
Deputy Durbin was transported to TJ Health Columbia by police vehicle, where he was treated and released several hours later.
Robert Maynard was taken to TJ Health Columbia for medical clearance before he was admitted to jail.
The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
