An Ohio man is in jail after a shopping trip in his home state ended up in Corbin Friday night. The price wasn’t right for the man, after he was arrested in a bizarre incident that left his girlfriend with numerous injuries.
Darren M. Maloy, 42 of Miamisburg, Ohio was charged with second-degree assault and second-degree unlawful imprisonment by Corbin Police. He was taken to the Whitley County Detention Center in Williamsburg.
According to Public Information Officer Major Rob Jones, the Corbin Police Department received a call around 9:39 p.m. Friday from Baptist Regional Medical Center, who reported a badly beaten female had been admitted to the hospital’s delivery room.
After Captain Coy Wilson arrived at the hospital, he spoke to Erica Smith, whose age and address were not given. Smith told Wilson that she and her boyfriend Maloy were shopping in Ohio, but after an argument he drove on Interstate 75 going south.
Smith added Maloy drove over four hours down the four-lane, refusing to let her exit the vehicle they were in. When they got to Corbin, she tried to get out of the vehicle at Exit 25 off I-75 when Maloy hit the accelerator, dragging her down the interstate at speeds of over 40 miles per hour.
Her injuries at BRMC included large lacerations on the top of her head and feet, along with road rash covering her entire body.
After talking to Smith at the hospital, police conducted a search for Maloy. Maloy was later found at a local motel by Wilson and Sgt. Rick Baker where he was arrested and taken into custody.
