Civil Suit Against Government Continues

A federal judge has issued a stay in the civil lawsuit filed against a Cherokee Village police officer. However, the civil case will continue against numerous other government officials.

Judge Billy Roy Wilson ordered a stay in the civil suit against Defendant Joshua Trivitt but ordered the case will continue against the other defendants including, Ash Flat Police Chief Anthony Wiles, Cherokee Village Police Chief Rickey Crook, Sharp County Sheriff Mark Counts, the City of Ash Flat, the City of Cherokee Village, and Sharp County.

Randell Lee Veazie filed the federal lawsuit in June 2018 in the United States District Court Eastern District of Arkansas.

The lawsuit stemmed from an incident on November 12, 2016, when several officers responded to Veazie’s house in Ash Flat due to a supposed domestic issue.
