KENNETT, MO (KAIT) – The woman accused of cutting line at a Kennett Wal-Mart, is heading to jail as part of her plea agreement with prosecutors.

Ellis will serve four days in the Dunklin County Jail starting this Saturday the 19th.

In January 2007, she was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace, resisting arrest, and assaulting a police officer after cutting in line at a local Wal-Mart. When police arrived at the scene they said Ellis used obscene language, kicked, and bit officers as they led her out of the store.

During her trial while the jury was deliberating, Ellis pled guilty to disturbing the peace and resisting arrest back on November 23rd. The assault charge was dropped as part of the plea deal.

Under the deal Ellis accepted, she must serve one year of unsupervised probation, take anger management classes, and had to serve four days in the Dunklin County Jail sometime this year at her convenience.

She's set to get out of the Dunklin County Jail on December 23rd.
