Deputy William Sadler was shot and killed by a man he had attempted to arrest earlier in the evening for being drunk in public and creating a disturbance in Corbin.

The man was able to escape during the initial arrest and went to the home of a friend retrieve a shotgun. He returned to town 30 minutes later and went to a local diner. When Deputy Sadler entered the diner to confront him the subject rose from his table and shot him in the stomach.
