Three Licking residents are charged with assault following an incident at a Houston parking lot. 

Three Licking residents – two women and one man – were issued citations by the Houston Police Department last Thursday for public peace disturbance after a fight near the front entrance of a Houston business.

Ticketed in the Walmart parking lot incident were Amanda M. Maglone, 31, of 109 Beth St.; Katelyn L. Cook, 17, of 308 Heights St.; and Robert J. Owens II, 18, of 33231 County Road 6330.

An officer was dispatched at about 4:15 p.m. and determined that the disturbance broke out over Cook possibly being a witness to an earlier vehicle accident.

Walmart employees had reportedly tried to put a stop to the fight, only to have the combatants turn their wrath upon them.

Maglone reportedly tore Cook’s clothing during the scuffle and was punched in the face by Cook, causing swelling to her nose and left eye. Maglone (who was charged with felony forgery in early January after allegedly conspiring with her husband to manufacture counterfeit money) was taken to Texas County Memorial Hospital for treatment.
