Courthouse News
Brian Douglas Blair, 37, of Hagerhill, was arrested on August 17 after a Kentucky State Police officer responded to a call of a domestic dispute at the residence that Brian Blair shared with his parents, Steve and Nancy Blair. When the officer arrived, he found Steve Blair bleeding profusely from an injury on his forehead. According to the citation, Brian Blair had become belligerent during a verbal altercation with his mother over the use of her computer. When Steve Blair attempted to intervene, Brian Blair pushed him, causing him to strike a nearby door frame.
The door frame lead to Brian Blair’s bedroom, and the officer observed two orange needle caps in the floor of the bedroom, the officer says in the citation. The officer documented Steve Blair’s injuries and attempting to locate the suspect.
The officer made contact with the suspect after arriving at a residence nearby, when he heard the back door slam open, according to the citation. The officer wrote in the citation that he located Blair in an unsecured outside building, hiding under a blanket in muddy socks, shorts and a t-shirt, after following what appeared to be tracks from someone’s bare feet.
According to the citation, the officer advised Blair he was under arrest, and Blair resisted him, and the officer had to detain him by force.
The officer noted in the citation that several fresh “track marks” were visible on Blair, and that a search revealed four syringes in his left pocket, two of which were uncapped.
While being escorted back to the officer’s vehicle, Blair began yelling and acting belligerently, making it difficult for him to escort Blair up the bank, according to the citation.
The officer also noted that Blair had dilated pupils that did not respond to light stimuli, and exhibited “fidgety behavior,” and that Blair continued to yell and “violently rock back and forth” once placed in the cruise.
Blair was charged with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence, minor injury), resisting arrest, second-degree fleeing or evading police, second-degree disorderly conduct, buying or possessing drug paraphernalia and public intoxication on a controlled substance.

Jodi L. Colvin, 40, of Paintsville, was arrested Thursday, July 27 after management at Rite Aid called law enforcement about a shoplifter, according to court documents. When officer Zach Mitchell of the Paintsville Police Department arrived, he observed Colvin with glassy, bloodshot eyes and discovered several items from the store in her purse alongside a baggy containing marijuana. Mitchell said in the citation he placed Colvin under arrest at this point, and searched her belongings further, finding several pills, which Colvin identified as Neurontin, and several different pills and a syringe.
Colvin was charged with theft by unlawful taking or shoplifting under $500, public intoxication on a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, buying or possessing drug paraphernalia and controlled substance prescription not in original container, first offense. Colvin was housed in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center (BSRDC), where she was released less than two hours later, according to BSRDC documentation.
Approximately 24 hours later, according to a separate citation filed by Kentucky State Police Trooper Hale, he observed Colvin walking down the middle of 8th Street towards the intersection with Ky. Rt. 321. Hale said in the citation that he pulled his vehicle behind Colvin, and she did not seem to notice his headlights behind her and was stumbling as she walked.
After speaking with Colvin, Hale noted in the citation that she was lethargic and had slow, slurred speech.
“I asked the subject for her ID and she retrieved it from her purse, handing it to me and stating, ‘Thank you,’ before attempting to walk away. I reminded the subject that I still had her operator’s license and she turned back around to face me.” Hale said in the citation.
The citation continued, stating Hale then administered several field sobriety tests before placing Colvin under arrest. After being placed in the cruiser Colvin was attempting to reach for her bra, before being advised by Hale that if she had something concealed on her person, it would be considered contraband if she attempted to enter BSRDC with it, according to the document.
Colvin advised Hale that she had a “rig” in her bra, and Hale allowed her to remove the hypodermic needle, Hale said in the citation.
Colvin is currently housed in the BSRDC and charged with public intoxication on a controlled substance and buying or possessing drug paraphernalia.
