The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called out to the Cane Creek Road area where someone was reportedly trying to get inside vehicles and moving items around on porches. Officers found 37 year old Richard W. Biggs standing beside the open door of a car. During the investigation, Biggs began yelling at a deputy and tried to hit him with his elbow causing a scuffle. With the help of other deputies and bystanders Biggs was taken into custody. After he was placed in the back of the police cruiser, Biggs tried to start a fire in the car. Deputies say they think Biggs was under the influence of the drug Flakka. Biggs was charged with criminal mischief, resisting arrest, assault, public intoxication of controlled substances, and arson. He was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
