RUSK – The Rusk Police Department made eight arrests the afternoon of Tuesday, July 17 for disorderly conduct when a verbal altercation between neighbors turned into a brawl. The incident occurred in the 800 block of Lincoln Street at approximately 3 p.m.

“We had responded to the area a number of times because we had had several families having verbal arguments in the street. We told them several times to calm down and to try to work things out,” said Assistant Police Chief Roy Cavazoz. “When we made the arrests, we hadn’t been dispatched to the scene. We just happened to turn onto the street, and there was about 60 people in the middle of the road and two girls were fighting.”

Cavazoz said the fight escalated as officers were attempting to take the two females into custody.

“While we were trying to cuff the girls, about four or five guys started getting into it. We arrested as many people involved in the fight as we could,” he said.

Arrested at the scene were Tangie Overstreet, 24; Lawonda Session, 22; Leshawn Sessions, 20; Nickey Cook, 20; Jeremy Shedd, 20; Deshawn Session, 19; Malcolm Session, 17; and April Shedd, 17.
