According to the probable cause affidavit, Felicia Sanders and Shanice Moore were arrested after police say they assaulted a Jonesboro police officer while she was assisting with another incident.

While the officer was fighting Sanders, Moore then jumped in and began fighting the officer as well.

Bond was set at $7,500 and both ladies have bonded out. 

Officer Duncan did suffer a cut underneath her eye and a cut on her lip.
