Bowling Green man accused of assaulting mother, Laurel deputies

Feb. 9—SOUTH LAUREL — A Bowling Green man was arrested earlier this week by police following an incident which occurred at a motel off of KY 770 in southern Laurel County.

Richard Bill Logsdon, 45, was charged with second-degree Disorderly Conduct, third-degree Assault (Police Officer), fourth-degree Assault (Domestic Violence), three counts of third-degree Terroristic Threatening, Menacing, and Public Intoxication.

According to the Laurel County Sheriff's Office, on Wednesday evening, LCSO Deputies Austyn Weddle and Byron Grimes were called to the scene of a motel after receiving complaints of a belligerent individual outside.

Upon arrival, Dep. Weddle learned that Logsdon had been shoved to the ground by a bystander for allegedly beating his own mother.

The altercation left Logsdon with a head wound, which required stitches.

Police say that as they attempted to place Logsdon into custody, he resisted by kicking officers and threatening to kill them once he was released.

Additionally, Logsdon allegedly made vulgar remarks to hospital staff when being treated for his head wound.

Logsdon was arraigned in Laurel County District Court on Friday and remained at press time lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center with a $25,000 bond.
