Marilyn Goldsberry

A Mary Alice woman was indicted on charges including robbery as well as being arrested on misdemeanor charges on Sunday.

Marilyn Goldsberry, 45, was arrested on charges of second-degree disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication in a public place by Kentucky State Police Trooper Jacob Spurlock.

According to the citation, Goldsberry was heavily intoxicated and causing a disturbance in her landlord’s yard.

Goldsberry was additionally served with an indictment warrant.

The indictment, handed down by the grand jury on February 8, stems from Goldsberry’s arrest on May 3.

The citation issued to Goldsberry by arresting officer Harlan City Police Sgt. Jeff Owens at the time of her May 3 arrest, states the Lower Clover Fork Fire Department was conducting a donation collection at the Walmart Bridge. Goldsberry went up to one of the firemen in the middle of the bridge and stated “There’s no fire here.” She then attempted to take the boot containing donated money away from the fireman. The fireman would not let go of the boot. He was pulled in front of a truck due to Goldsberry’s attempt to take the boot from him. Goldsberry caused alarm to the surrounding public, as well as placing the fireman in danger for his life. Goldsberry told police she was trying to get the boot in order to place money inside it, and that she had done nothing wrong.

She was indicted on charges of second-degree robbery and first-degree wanton endangerment.

Owens presented the evidence to the grand jury resulting in the two-count indictment.

Goldsberry was lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center on a $5,000 full cash bond.
