Triplett SeanMADISONVILLE, Ky. (9/10/18) — It wasn’t the baby chicks that caused a fight to break out in Rural King over the weekend.

A Madisonville Police Department arrest report revealed officers responded to a call concerning the physical disturbance12:44 p.m. Friday inside the store.

It was alleged that 33-year-old Sean A. Triplett of Madisonville spat in the face of Michael Faulk.

Faulk responded to the gesture by shoving Triplett, and then Triplett tackled Faulk, knocking him to the ground and causing a laceration to Faulk’s head that hit the concrete floor, according to the report.

MPD Officer Taylor Boggs wrote, “While Faulk was dazed from this bump, (Triplett) proceeded to punch Faulk in his left eye resulting in severe discoloration, swelling, bleeding and a fractured orbital bone.”

Police said Triplett fled the scene to avoid authorities. The two had a history of altercations in the past, and happened to be in the same place at the same time that led to words being exchanged over past incidents.

Triplett was picked up Saturday afternoon and taken to Hopkins County Jail. He was charged with second-degree assault and released this morning on his own recognizance.
