FORKLAND - A domestic violence call to a remote farm led Boyle County deputies to an indoor and outdoor marijuana growing operation.
Danny Holt, 60, of 522 Curtis Road, remains lodged in the Boyle County Detention Center this morning under a $45,000 bond. He was arrested Monday night at his residence on drug, gun and assault charges. Additional federal charges may be pending.
Deputy Brian Wofford said he arrived at the residence, located on a ridgetop near the end of Curtis Road, about 7:30 p.m. Monday and saw a woman leaving the barn area with a hammer. She appeared to have been hit in the face, and Holt was charged with fourth-degree assault, Wofford said.
While making the arrest, deputies noticed grow lights in plain view on the porch and used that information to obtain a search warrant, Wofford said.
