Bowling Green, KY. (June 27, 2019)—On Thursday morning at 10:09 A.M.

Uniformed troopers and detectives responded to the scene, which was located near the 4000 block of Louisville Road (US 31W.)
A preliminary investigation has revealed that the Deputy Jailer was supervising a work detail in the area, when members of the crew were approached and confronted by an unknown male party, not affiliated with the Warren County Regional Jail.
