A Belleview woman found herself behind bars Monday night after being accused of starting a fight and pelting two other women with rocks.
Both of the victims told Belleview Police officers that 26-year-old Shakia D. McCloud came towards them and started to scream as they were walking down a road. They said she hit them in the arms with rocks, as well as their neighbors’ vehicles, a police report states.
Both victims also told officers that McCloud pushed their trash cans over. They said they were attempting to get out of McCloud’s way and avoid getting involved in a physical altercation with her, the report says.
A witness said she was outside and observed McCloud “doing the most” by screaming at the victims and attempting to start a fight with them. The witness also said she saw McCloud throwing rocks at the victims, the report says.
Officers placed McCloud in handcuffs “due to her aggressive behavior” and put her in the rear seat of a patrol vehicle. While being taken into custody, she “kept on screaming at the victims and attempting to run toward them in an aggressive manner,” the report says.
McCloud, who lives in the 11500 block of S.E. 58th Ave. in Belleview, was transported to the Marion County Jail and charged with two counts of battery and disorderly conduct. She was released Thursday on $750 bond and is due in court Aug. 4 at 8 a.m. to answer to the charges.
