Lakeview woman arrested for PDC and resisting after verbal dispute


A Lakeview woman was arrested for persistent disorderly conduct and resisting arrest Wednesday evening around 9 o’clock following an argument with her husband.

The Logan County Sheriff’s Office responded to a residence in the 11,000 block of Holly Drive in Lakeview regarding a 911 hang-up. Dispatch advised deputies they could hear a female and a male arguing.

Upon arrival, authorities met with the caller, Olivia Hicks, 25. She advised she and her husband had gotten into a verbal argument and told deputies the situation did not get physical.

The husband, who had left the residence, returned and told authorities the argument started because he caught Hicks drinking mouthwash that contained alcohol. He stated Hicks has a major alcohol issue and she was scheduled to take a shot for alcohol dependency.

Hicks became agitated and started yelling. She was advised if she did not stop, she would be placed under arrest for persistent disorderly conduct.

While speaking with Hicks, deputies noticed signs of impairment.

She stated she wanted help with her alcohol issues and wanted to go to the hospital because she was depressed.

Hicks then got into another verbal dispute with her husband with authorities present.

She was placed under arrest.

Hicks began screaming that the handcuffs were too tight and resisted being put in the cruiser. Authorities loosened the handcuffs and she continued to complain that the cuffs were too tight.

At the Logan County Jail, Hicks refused to exit the cruiser and she was forcefully removed. As she was escorted down the hall of the jail, she kicked a Corrections Officer in the pelvis area and was placed in the restraint chair.

She was lodged for persistent disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and assault.

The report was forwarded to the Logan County Prosecutor’s Office and Children Services for review.
