Laurel County man pulls revolver on deputies

Deputies with the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office say an investigation led to a tense standoff Saturday afternoon.

Deputies were responding to complaints of a “suspicious person” refusing to leave a property off Chestnut Way in London.

When they arrived to investigate, they say 59-year-old Michael Collins pointed a revolver at them.

They say Collins repeatedly refused to comply but was eventually taken in.

He is charged with two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and is being held in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
