Two people in the home were checked by Emergency Medical Services at the scene. One person with possible minor injuries was taken by LifeNet to a local hospital for treatment. They were uninjured and chose to stay at another location for the night.

Kelly is booked into the Bi-State Jail on a felony probation violation warrant.
