POLICE: School aid had drugs, assaulted man with cowboy boots
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- An eastern Kanawha County woman is facing assault, battery and possession charges after allegedly throwing cowboy boots at a store manager in Quincy.
Heather Rose Lively, 34, of Hansford was arrested Monday morning at Magic Mart in the Quincy shopping mall.
Trooper R.S. Minor was dispatched to look into a disturbance at the store, located just yards away from the Quincy detachment.
Gary Lee Harrah, store manager, told the trooper Lively came into the store, took off her cowboy boots and placed them on the counter, according to a complaint filed in Kanawha Magistrate Court. She told him she wanted to return or exchange the boots, but Harrah refused.
He said she "became enraged and began yelling" at him, and then picked up the boots and threw them at him, striking him in the face, according to the complaint.
Lively told the trooper she only threw the boots on the floor. Minor noted in the complaint that as he spoke to Lively she stood barefoot. Lively works as an aide at Riverside High School, according to the state Department of Education's website.
Harrah did not have any injuries. A witness told Minor that Lively was very belligerent and struck Harrah with the boots.
Lively was placed under arrest and taken to the nearby detachment for processing. The officer then searched her purse and found two blue and white packages of Suboxone, which is used to treat opium dependence. Lively told troopers she is addicted to the pills and bought them off the street.
Lively was being held at South Central Regional Jail on $5,000 bond.
