Sedalia Couple Threatens Pettis County Deputies
Early Saturday morning around 2 a.m., Pettis County Deputies responded to the 100 block of Villa Drive in Pettis County in reference to a subject harassing a neighbor.
During the investigation, the suspect, who was identified as Colleen J. Nichols, was advised that she was under arrest. At that time, she slammed the door on Deputies, that included a Deputy's foot and another Deputy's hand.
As Deputies were attempting to gain entry into the residence, Nichols advised her boyfriend, Jason Hedrick, to "get the gun." Deputies were able to make entry and placed Nichols and Hedrick into custody. At the time, within arm's reach of Hedrick, a loaded firearm was located.
Both subjects were transported to the Pettis County Jail.
Colleen J. Nichols was charged with 2nd-degree Harassment, Resisting Arrest, and 4th degree Assault. Bond was set at $5,000.
Jason Hedrick was later released from the Pettis County Jail.
The report noted that no Deputies were seriously injured.
