Man involved in standoff appears in court

The man accused of assaulting two police officers February 7th and then causing an eight hour standoff appeared in court Wednesday morning. 40 year-old Christopher Spencer allegedly assaulted two Bowling Green Police officers while responding to a call at Clarion Inn, when they came across Spencer inside the hotel. When they attempted to apprehend Spencer, police say two officers were assaulted, before Spencer proceeded to flee, eventually stealing a car from the parking lot. Kentucky State Police were called later to a mobile home in Edmonson County as part of the search for Spencer. When troopers arrived, they found an unoccupied truck at the home which had been reported as "stolen" by the Warren County Sheriff's Department. That's when police say several attempts to communicate and call Spencer out of the home were unsuccessful, and Spencer refused to exit the residence. Police say right after 3:57 p.m., after multiple rounds of gas canisters were deployed into the home, Spencer exited. State Police say he refused to boey verbal commands to comply and lay on the ground. Spencer was tased by a member of Kentucky State Police Special Response Team and taken into custody without further incident. The case was bound over to the grand jury Wednesday morning.

Former principal sentenced for child porn

A former Larue County High School principal has been sentenced to nine years in federal prison for child pornography after uploading nude pictures of a student whose cellphone he confiscated. Stephen Kyle Goodlett apologized in Louisville federal court Thursday to his victims and the judge.

Authorities traced it to Goodlett and found many images on his devices. Prosecutors say Goodlett searched confiscated student cellphones for nude photos of teenage girls and saved them to thumb drives to be viewed and traded on the internet.

Flu deaths increasing in Kentucky

Kentucky Public Health Officials say the state has had 100 flu related deaths. At least four of those deaths have been children. Kentucky had 76 flu-related deaths last season. This is the seventh consecutive week of widespread flu activity in Kentucky. The flu season runs through late May, so State Epidemiologist Jonathan Ballard said it is not too late to get a flu shot. After getting a flu shot, it takes about two weeks to develop protection from the flu. The flu is highly contagious and can be life-threatening. Symptoms include fever, headache, cough, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing and body aches and can cause people to miss between three to five days of work or school. People with flu symptoms should ask a doctor if they need an antiviral drug.

Kentucky Film Industry a success

The Kentucky film industry is a success story in the making.  Since the General Assembly adopted a new incentive structure in 2015, Kentucky has benefited from a 900 percent increase in the number of productions shot in the Bluegrass State. Those productions have led to the creation of hundreds of new jobs and millions of dollars in direct investment in local economies, meaning that for every $1 that Kentucky has spent on film incentives, it has produced $10 in economic activity. Small towns are benefiting from increased traffic and investment that comes with a film production. Kentucky is also likely to announce private investment in what would be the first full-size production studio in 2018.

Warren County couple arrested

The Warren County Sheriff's Office arrested 44 year-old Steven Doss Friday night after allegedly threatening to kill both himself and his wife. WCSO initially responded to a domestic disturbance call, but deputies say Doss drove away in a Ford Mustang. The car was found near Pearl Street and Highway 185 when deputies say Doss took off toward Butler County, failing to pull over when asked. Deputies had reason to believe Doss was holding his wife captive inside the car. The ensuing pursuit, which reached speeds over 100 mph, ended when Doss reached a dead-end road in Butler County. Deputies say Doss got out of his car and actively resisted arrest. Deputies determined that Doss was in possession of a large knife and was under the influence of methamphetamine. Doss was arrested and found to have an active warrant in Logan County. Subsequently, WCSO also arrested Doss's wife, who also had an active warrant for her arrest. Kimberly and Steven Doss were both placed in the Warren County Regional Jail.
