CNN: Woman to plead guilty to misdemeanors in Missouri Wal-Mart scuffle
November 20, 2009 8:35 p.m. EST

Kennett, Missouri (CNN) — A woman accused of cutting in line at a Wal-Mart, shoving merchandise and assaulting police officers will plead guilty to disturbing the peace and resisting arrest, both misdemeanors.

Under the agreement — reached after the jury received the case for deliberations — Heather Ellis will plead guilty to disturbing the peace and resisting arrest. She will serve a year of unsupervised probation, attend an anger management course and serve four days in jail before the end of the year.

The sentence stipulates that if Ellis stays out of trouble for a year, the charges will be sealed and the arrest won’t be on her permanent record.

Ellis said after court was adjourned that she was “taking responsibility for her actions and [hopes] that everyone else involved in the case will take responsibility for theirs.”

Earlier Friday, Ellis, 24, took the stand and denied all charges in the racially charged case.
