A Grambling caller who dialed 911 but refused to give a reason for making the call Saturday afternoon remained in the Lincoln Parish Detention Center on Tuesday facing multiple charges.
The arrest affidavit for Katie Liserio reported that she called 911 around 3:45 p.m. Saturday. She reportedly refused to provide a reason for making the call but just asked that any officer other than Grambling Police Department Sgt. Aundrea Livingston respond to the call.
Liserio’s arrest report says she was then told by the dispatcher that Livingston would be the one responding to the call.
Upon arriving at 138 Edith Rose Dr, Apt. H57, Livingston that Liserio refused to talk to her but requested to speak to a GPD officer that responded just after Livingston arrived.
Liserio said she had let her 5-year-old daughter spend the night with a coworker, but the coworker was refusing to return the child.
The arrest report by Livingston said that when she asked Liserio how long she had known the coworker, Liserio responded by cursing and saying, “I don’t want no lecture from you today and I had it out for you (expletive).”
Livingston reported that Liserio continued by calling Livingston “a messy (expletive) because Livingston had previously called Child Protective Services on Liserio and that Liserio then kept on by telling Livingston that “if you try to come and touch me I’m going to (expletive) you up.”
The arrest report says the other GPD officer advised Liserio to not make any more threats and that Liserio responded by saying, “This is not a threat, this is a promise.”
Livingston reported immediately then reading Liserio her Miranda rights because of the threats and that she attempted Liserio, who “swung her phone at me, hitting my in the face and knocking my glasses off, breaking them.”
The officers then reported working to handcuff Liserio, who they allege continued fighting and “becoming even more combative by striking out with all her legs and body weight” as they tried to place her in the back of a patrol unit.
Liserio was then reportedly transported to the Grambling Police Station before being transferred to the Lincoln Parish Detention.
Livingston reportedly ended up with a large bump on her forehead as a result of the incident.
Liserio remained in the LPDC Tuesday night on $55,000 bond facing charges of aggravated battery of a police officer, two counts of battery of a police officer, resisting arrest with violence and criminal damage to property.
