Former challenger for jailer now jailed himself

A candidate in the 2010 race for Jailer was arrested last weekend, after Kentucky State Police received a report of domestic violence.

Stanley E. Lee, now 44, of Martin, lost the 2010 election challenging Jailer Roger Webb. Webb captured 66 percent of the vote.

On Sunday, according to police reports, Lee was arrested before dawn, after police received a call from a victim advising that her live-in boyfriend was assaulting her and "beat her head in." According to the statements made by the victim in the police report, she was intoxicated, after she accompanied Lee to a Holiday Inn to drink and socialize with friends. The alleged victim told police Lee became upset because, according to the police report, she had information on her child's father on her new cell phone and that the subject is very jealous of that person.

Lee was transported to the Floyd County Detention Center, where he then advised the officer that he had scratches from defending himself. Lee reportedly requested that he be surrendered to the Floyd County Sheriff, instead of being housed in the detention center, because he was a former federal law enforcement officer.
