A Chanute woman was placed under arrest over the weekend for a variety of crimes including disorderly conduct.
Chanute police were dispatched to the area of the 700 block of North Forest for a report of a disturbance involving a female outside a residence yelling and screaming. Upon officer's arrival, they noticed an adult female, 21-year-old Jamie Kaylyn Audra Shrouds, in the front yard screaming. Officers tried talking with Jamie and defuse the situation, but she continued yelling and screaming, causing some of the neighbors to come outside.
While the officers were trying to figure out what had taken place, Shrouds got into her vehicle and proceeded to drive away with two young children inside. Officers were able to get her stopped and placed her under arrest. During the arrest, Shrouds started to resist the officers as they were placing her in handcuffs. Officers called EMS to the scene to evaluate Shrouds medically and who was then transported to the Neosho County Jail.
Shrouds was charged with disorderly conduct, battery on a law enforcement officer, and interference with a law enforcement officer without incident. The children were released to a family member and were not injured during the incident.
