Mayfield Police Chief Nathan Kent reported the following arrests and warrants served:

• David Anthony Burton, 27, of Mayfield was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (first offense, aggravated circumstances). Officers responded to a single vehicle collision at 3:06 a.m. Monday on the Purchase Parkway at the 24 mile marker. A southbound vehicle had crossed the median into the northbound lanes, overturned and came to rest on its top. Burton was treated for his injuries at Jackson Purchase Medical Center and released. The Mayfield Police Department was assisted by the Graves County Rescue Squad.

• Jeremiah Sayles, 27, of Mayfield was served with a Graves County bench warrant Thursday charging him with contempt of court for failure to appear in court concerning fines and costs on the original charge of theft by unlawful taking (shoplifting) under $500. Mayfield police officers saw Sayles walking on East Broadway and were aware of his outstanding warrant. He was stopped at 9:06 a.m., and the warrant was confirmed. He was then arrested and taken to the Graves County Jail.

• Scott Darnell, 50, of Mayfield was charged with disregarding a traffic control device (traffic light), operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs (first offense), driving on a suspended or revoked license and possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle following a traffic stop Saturday evening. He was also served with a bench warrant charging him with failure to pay fines. While on patrol Saturday evening, a Mayfield police officer saw a vehicle running a light at the intersection of Ky. 80 and Ky. 97, Kent said. The vehicle was northbound on Ky. 97 and turned east onto Ky. 80. The officer stopped the vehicle on Ky. 80 East. While speaking with the driver, later identified as Darnell, the officer noticed several open alcoholic beverage containers in the rear passenger floorboard, Kent said. A computer check showed Darnell had a suspended driver's license and an active bench warrant. A search of the vehicle revealed seven empty beer cans, one half full beer and two straws that Darnell admitted he had used to snort hydrocodone, Kent said. Darnell was taken to the Graves County Jail.

• Rory Matheny, 57, of Mayfield was served with four bench warrants Friday evening. Two charge him with contempt of court, and two charge him with failure to pay fines, court costs or fees. Officers were called to the 400 block of South 11th Street at 5:50 p.m. Friday in reference to a disturbance and saw Matheny, with whom they were familiar. A check with Kentucky State Police dispatchers showed he had the active warrants. He was taken to the Graves County Jail.

• Randal Colley, 59, of Mayfield was charged with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence, no visible injury) on Saturday afternoon.

Officers were dispatched to a home in the 1000 block of South 10th Street on Saturday afternoon for a disturbance. Upon arrival, officers made contact with Colley outside the home. Colley said he and his girlfriend had been in an argument but that everything was fine now, Kent said. The officer made contact with Colley's girlfriend and her adult daughter inside the home. The home was in complete disarray, and it was apparent that multiple items had been thrown around inside, Kent said. The victim and her daughter told police that Colley had been throwing things at them, and they had videos of him doing so. The victim also said she had been grabbed by the neck and shoved multiple times. Colley was taken to the Graves County Jail.
