Resisting Arrest following Altercation

Participation in an altercation was cited with a Laurens County Sheriff’s Office arrest early Sunday morning. 23-year-old Tiyanna Laquan Abney of Smith Street, Ware Shoals was charged with Breach of Peace, Non-Aggravated in Nature and with Resisting Arrest.

Sheriff’s Investigator Farrah Cook states that on Sunday morning Ms. Abney was involved in an altercation with an unknown subject and when law enforcement intervened, she continued to fight, scream and use profanity towards the subject and towards law enforcement. She is also accused of knowingly and willfully oppose and/or resist arrest by pulling away from an officer, crossing her arms and refusing to be handcuffed.

Tiyanna Abney was released yesterday afternoon on personal recognizance bonds totaling $3,087.50.
