DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Police in Danville brought more than an angry couple with them to the jail after making two arrests.
Police Chief Tony Gray says 11 police and jail employees - along with the arrestees, Thomas and Lisa McManus - and a police cruiser had to be decontaminated Wednesday morning after officers discovered the house had a bed bug infestation.
Officers went to the house shared by the couple late Tuesday night for reports of domestic violence. After arresting the couple and charging them with fourth-degree assault, they were taken to Boyle County Detention Center.
Gray told The Advocate-Messenger that's when officers found out about the infestation. Gray says the Danville Fire Department handled the decontamination before jailers placed the couple in cells.
