COLD SPRING, KY (FOX19) -

A Cold Spring Councilwoman is behind bars facing drug and assault charges.

Lisa Cavanaugh and her husband John Cavanaugh were arrested after officers were called to her Cold Spring home Sunday for a domestic violence call, according to Cold Spring Mayor David "Angelo" Penque.

Penque told FOX19 NOW a search of the premise allegedly showed marijuana and paraphernalia in Lisa's bedroom.

Lisa, 54, is being held at the Campbell County Jail on fourth degree assault, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia charges.  

John, 58 is also being held on a fourth degree assault charge.

Penque told FOX19 NOW by Kentucky Law she cannot be removed from council except conviction of a felony. 

“I have no comment this is a personal issue and a personal problem and everyone has personal issues. Unfortunately being on council, mine is public knowledge. But I have no comment,” said Cavanaugh.

Both are due in court on April 15.
