Warrensburg Judge Mindy Fisk presided Jan. 11 over a full court session, which included several felony cases — one in which authorities said a woman struck a man intentionally with her car, another in which a gun-wilding man was accused of trying to punch a police officer and fleeing rather than getting arrested for Disorderly Conduct. In another case, a man pled Guilty to Endangering the Welfare of a Child for touching her private parts. Concluding the docket was a case in which a 72-year-old woman was accused of stealing honey, cookies and a children's book from the local grocery store.
