Laurel County Man Arrested on Charge of Wanton Endangerment

On Saturday, July 14, 2018, the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man on a charge of wanton endangerment. The arrest occurred around 7:27 am at a residence off Locust Grove Road after deputies responded to a call of an individual apparently hallucinating and throwing knives in the floor and walls. When deputies arrived at the scene, they observed a male subject through a broken window, he was holding two large knives in his hands. Deputies entered the residence and took control of the subject, identified as 53-year-old Gregory Baker, of Keavy. Through investigation, it was learned that the suspect’s daughter, who was seven months pregnant, had to lock herself and her two young children in a room to keep the suspect away from them. The suspect was determined to be under the influence and was arrested without incident. Baker was charged with wanton endangerment, terroristic threatening, and public intoxication. He was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
