WARSAW — Two people from Pierceton were recently arrested after a domestic incident at a Warsaw gas station.
Levi Kensington Coy, 20, 8280 E. US 30 Lot 80, Pierceton; and Makayla May Coy, 21, 8280 E. US 30 Lot 18, Pierceton, are each charged with domestic battery with a child under 16 present, a level 6 felony; and domestic battery, a class A misdemeanor.
On Aug. 25, a Warsaw Police officer responded to a domestic complaint at a local gas station. There were two calls to dispatch made about the incident, one from Makayla and the other from Levi.
According to court documents, Makayla said she met Levi, her estranged husband, at a local gas station to give him gas she owed him. Three children were in her vehicle at the time.
Makayla told the officer that Levi became angry and yelled at her, causing saliva to fly from his mouth onto her face. She said she began shoving Levi away from her and asked him to stop spitting in her face.
When she asked Levi to leave the vehicle, Levi allegedly refused to close the passenger door. She told the officer that Levi blocked her from closing the door. When she pushed him aside, Levi attempted to record her with his cellphone. Makayla asked him to stop recording and Levi said his phone was dead. He then placed his cellphone in his pocket.
Makayla asked Levi to show her his phone so she could confirm there was no video. However, Levi stayed in his vehicle. Makayla told the officer she tripped on a rock and fell into Levi’s driver’s seat, grabbing the steering wheel for balance. Levi yelled at Makyala to let go of him and his vehicle and began to pull Makayla’s fingers from the steering wheel. He grabbed and pulled Makayla’s hair. Makayla then left the area.
The officer then spoke with Levi, who said he met with Makayla so she could give him gas she owed him. He said they were sitting in her vehicle when Makayla began arguing with him. When Makayla told him to leave, Levi said he refused because he wanted to spend time with the children in the vehicle.
When Levi got out of the vehicle and asked Makayla why she was talking like that to him, she allegedly began to shove him. Levi told the officer he got out his phone to record but that his phone immediately died. He got into his vehicle when Makayla started to grab his pocket where his phone was and held onto his steering wheel.
Levi said he pried Makayla’s fingers off the steering wheel and was hit by Makayla’s elbow. He said he grabbed Makayla’s hair and pulled her away from his vehicle.
The Coys were arrested on Oct. 15, each with a $5,250 surety and cash bond.
