Sulphur Springs Police were called to a disturbance in the 700 block of Fuller Street Wednesday night shortly before 11 p.m. There the officer found Kyri Shakur Ivery, 23, in the yard of the residence yelling and acting belligerent.
When the officer asked her to calm down, she began to curse and yell again. As he attempted to restrain her, she pulled away and resisted the officer. As he used necessary force, she scratched his wrist. Following her restraint, the officer’s investigation found that she had attacked her brother with a knife and bit him as he tried to wrestle the knife from her.
Ivery is in Hopkins County Jail awaiting a magistrates’ hearing Thursday morning. She is charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon a Felony 2, assault on Public Servant a Felony 3, and a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest.
