An argument Monday over a Rock Island parking spot escalated into a disturbance that ended with an injured officer and two people in custody.
Rock Island Police say they responded to a disturbance about 9 a.m. Monday on the 600 block of 32nd Street, Rock Island.
Monique Nicholson, 42, faces a misdemeanor resisting/obstructing charge, court records say. She appeared Tuesday in Rock Island County Court, and is being held in Rock Island County Jail, where her bond was set at $1,500 – 10% applies.
Brittney Colvin, 19, faces two felony counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer, court records say. She is in Rock Island County Jail, where her bond was set at $10,000 – 10% applies.
She appeared Tuesday in Rock Island County Court, where she is set for a preliminary hearing Dec. 20.
Additionally, a 16-year-old was also arrested for resisting/obstructing and later released to a guardian.
Neighbor Zoe Paterson caught part of the disturbance on video after she alleges she saw an officer grab a young man and throw him to the ground.
“I think even if someone needed to be arrested, it didn’t have to be done that aggressively, especially because it was just a teenager,” said Paterson, who says she doesn’t know the full story.
Local 4 News has reached out to police, who did not issue a statement because this is an open investigation.
