JUNCTION CITY - A Junction City police officer was slightly injured in a tussle with a man he and two other law enforcement officers were trying to subdue early Monday morning, Boyle County Deputy Sheriff Jim Wilcher said.
Officer Randall Miller was poked in the eye while he, fellow Junction Officer Doug Combs and Wilcher tried to get Carnelius Farley under control during an investigation of a domestic disturbance case at Farley's residence at 4388 Hustonville Road. The officers were dispatched to Farley's house about 11:45 p.m. Sunday.
Miller and Farley were taken by ambulance to the emergency room at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center, where they were treated and released. Miller was treated for a slight eye injury, and Farley was treated for ingestion of several medications.
Farley, 39, was taken from the hospital to the Boyle County Detention Center. He was charged with two counts of assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, cultivating marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
