In-vehicle fight leads to arrest

(KAIR)--An altercation, inside a vehicle, led to the arrest, Saturday, of a 32-year-old Effingham woman.

According to release from Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie, Hillarie Liebermann was arrested that afternoon, in the 700 block of Effingham's George Street, for aggravated battery and criminal damage.

Laurie says the arrest followed an alleged altercation that occurred inside a vehicle traveling on U.S. Highway 73, between Atchison and Lancaster.

The arrest came after the 43-year-old victim alleged that Liebermann choked her and broke her eyeglasses during the altercation.

Liebermann was additionally arrested for an unrelated Leavenworth County District Court warrant charging her with battery and criminal trespass.

Once in custody, Liebermann was booked into the Atchison County Jail.

A second arrest on Saturday, in a separate case, sent a Topeka woman to jail on drug related charges.

According to Laurie, 36-year-old Tara Elder was taken into custody, following a traffic stop, shortly before 1:00 Saturday morning.

Her arrest followed a Deputy stopping her vehicle for the alleged traffic infraction in the 400 block of U.S. Highway 59, in Atchison. The investigation that followed led to the alleged discovery of the illegal drugs.

Elder was taken into custody on charges including driving while suspended, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

Following her arrest, Elder was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
