Polk County Enterprise
LIVINGSTON – Police arrested two woman shortly before midnight Saturday after a physical altercation escalated to the point gunshots were fired at an area apartment complex Det. Leon Middleton said Amber Gardener, 25, of Livingston and Shakkia Leeshay Robinson had been involved in a pair of physical confrontations. In a second altercation, Robinson attacked Gardener with a fork and Gardener pulled a firearm and fired a couple shots into the air. Witnesses told officers the shots were not fired toward Robinson, but they could not identify the type of gun used. Both women were charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and taken to the Polk County Jail by Darrell Newman of the Livingston Police Department and Sgt. Rob Thomas of the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. On Sunday, Livingston police officers were dispatched to a disturbance at a local fast food restaurant. Middleton said the ordeal was witnessed by an off-duty police officer from another county and he assisted restaurant staff in convincing Nathan Demon King, 33, of Livingston to leave the restaurant. “Once outside he caused another scene and fought with officers,” Middleton said. During the fight, King allegedly struck Sgt. Ronnie Bogany and Officer Chad Ward, according to Middleton. He was subdued, placed in handcuffs and taken to the county jail. King was charged with assault on a public servant, a third degree felony; resisting arrest, search or transport, a Class A misdemeanor and disorderly conduct.
