Floyd County Man Arrested

{Dwale,  Kentucky}...James Anthony Newsome, 37, of Dwale, is scheduled to appear in court June 13th after being arrested and charged with first-degree assault, possession of marijuana, resisting arrest and third-degree assault of a police officer. According to police reports, a Floyd County sheriff’s deputy was at home when Newsome's girlfriend, her face swollen and covered in blood, came to his house and told him Newsome had kicked her in the head with steel-toed boots. She was flown to Saint Mary’s Hospital in Huntington. When police went to Newsome’s residence, they say Newsome kicked and punched at the arresting officer. Newsome pleaded not guilty to assaulting the same victim in January.
