Woman arrested after incident with DCBS


A Radcliff woman was arrested Thursday evening after an alleged incident involving workers with the Kentucky Department for Community Based Services.

According to a citation from Radcliff police, the incident began when two DCBS workers visited the home of Kenyotta Wilson, 23, because of an open case she has with the department. Before the incident, DCBS had attempted to conduct an investigation but could not because Wilson reportedly had been uncooperative.

When the workers arrived, Wilson told the workers she would not stay at the scene and walked toward her vehicle, according to the citation.

Wilson then reportedly grabbed a child’s arm and threw her into the backseat of the vehicle. Upon entering the vehicle and putting it into reverse, Wilson allegedly continued driving while one of the DCBS workers was standing behind the vehicle. The worker had to jump out of the way to avoid being struck, the citation said.

At the time of her arrest, Wilson reportedly refused to provide DCBS with information on the child’s whereabouts. She was served Friday with an Emergency Custody Order by DCBS and Radcliff police completed a Missing Persons Report on behalf of DCBS, the citation said.

Wilson was charged with first-degree wanton endangerment and custodial interference, both of which are Class D felonies, each punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted. She currently is lodged at the Hardin County Detention Center in lieu of a $10,000 cash bond.
