Three northern Webster Parish, Louisiana, residents were arrested after a fight at a party in Bossier Parish.

Lashonda Douglas McGee, 27, of the 200 block of Lewis Avenue in Cotton Valley was arrested after a fight broke out a local party on Fullwood Road. McGee became engaged in a fistfight with an unknown female. McGee then got into a 2005 Cadillac Escalade and drove recklessly through a pasture where a large number of people were gathered. She struck a 13-year-old boy with the SUV. He sustained minor injuries to his ankle. Deputies arrived and attempted to take McGee into custody. She forcefully resisted their efforts, but deputies were eventually able to take her into custody. When deputies tried to identify her, she refused to provide any information, and she had no forms of identification.

Medics were called to the scene to examine the victim and McGee. McGee intentionally spit on one of the firemen examining her. She also refused a standard field sobriety test though she smelled strongly of alcoholic beverages, had bloodshot, watery eyes, slurred speech and was acting erratically. She was transported to LSUHSC and a registered nurse obtained a blood sample from McGee. She was rude and resisted the nurses. After leaving the hospital, she was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility. During transport, she removed her handcuffs three times. McGee is charged with vehicular negligent injuring, simple battery, resisting by force, resisting, simple escape, DWI, and disturbing the peace fighting. Her bond is set at $17,650.

Also arrested for fighting was Shonteako Vantrell Johnson, 33, of the 100 block of Nora Avenue in Cotton Valley.
