Laurel County's Sheriff says a warning shot scared off a man breaking into a house.

The Sheriff says someone tried to get into a house on Hodge Road around 4:30am Tuesday by opening a bedroom window.

The woman living there says she woke up, saw the man and fired a shot at the ceiling.

She says that caused the man to back out the window and hide under the house.

Police came and arrested 35-year-old Bobby Green.

And Deputy Josh Scott says he hurt his hand, trying to arrest Green.

He went to the hospital but is now out.

Green is now accused of burglary, resisting arrest and public intoxication.
