Livingston County Sheriff's Deputies have arrested Donald Beard (42 years of age) of Elmwood Drive Grand Rivers, KY. The arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by Deputy Brian Coleman and Deputy Irvin Davis. The two deputies arrived at Donald Beards rented residence on Elmwood Drive last week to evict Mr. Beard from the property.
