Ark City Police arrest two people after altercation

The Arkansas City Police Department arrested two Arkansas City residents Saturday night after they were involved in a verbal altercation in a roadway. Cassandra Dawn Shaw, 43, was arrested on suspicion of one misdemeanor count each of disorderly conduct-domestic violence and driving with a suspended driver’s license (first offense). Ansuan Shamarr Hollingsworth, 32, was arrested on suspicion of one felony count each of possession with intent to distribute cocaine and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. He also was arrested on one misdemeanor count each of criminal damage to property, disorderly conduct-domestic violence, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana. Officers were dispatched at 7:18 p.m. Saturday to the intersection of Eighth Street and Forrest Glenn Drive for a report of a possible motor vehicle accident at that location. They learned the incident was actually a verbal disturbance, not a traffic accident. Police made contact with the driver, later identified as Shaw, and her passenger, later identified as Hollingsworth. Neither individual was able to produce keys to the vehicle, which was creating a traffic hazard. During an inventory of the vehicle, numerous items of drugs and paraphernalia were located inside.
