  • Shannon Agin, 41, of 265 Agin Grove Road in rural Harrisburg, was arrested and charged with unlawful restraint, resisting an officer, aggravated battery, assault and disorderly conduct at approximately 10:30 p.m. Saturday.
    Agin had gotten into a dispute with Johnny Williams and John Sumner about the delivery of a four wheeler, according to a Saline County Sheriff’s report.
    Deputies believe the dispute originated from Agin’s belief Williams and Sumner were taking too long to deliver the vehicle and called them on a cell phone. When the pair arrived with the four wheeler at Agin's house, Agin began to beat Sumner with a stick and threw Williams keys in the yard so he could not leave, according to the report.
    Williams said to deputies that Agin head butted him in the face and beat him with the crutch that Williams was using due to a broken ankle incurred earlier in an unrelated incident. Agin struck Williams with his fist, the report indicates.
    Williams had a cast on his right foot. Williams got away and called the Sheriff's Office.
    Saline County Sheriff's Deputies Steve Sloan and Craig Williams arrived at the scene at 10:23 p.m.
    Agin resisted arrest, barricading himself inside his house and holding the door shut with his body, the report indicates.
    When the deputies kicked in the door Agin continued to resist and was shoved outside and onto the ground where he was handcuffed.
    Saline County Ambulance arrived to check on Williams condition, but Williams refused medical treatment in spite of lacerations on his face.
    During transport to Saline County Detention Center Agin stated that he had a right to hit Williams since he was on his own property, the report indicates.
