Officers with the Barry County Sheriff's Department had a busy day on Nov. 10 with arrests made in two separate incidents.

The first occurred when Barry County Deputy Scott Salkill was dispatched to the scene of a combative and intoxicated person in Monett.

According to a probable cause statement, family members reported Daniel Skipper II was becoming violent.

Salkill asked Skipper to place his hands behind his back and Skipper resisted arrest. After a struggle with the suspect, Salkill was able to take Skipper into custody.

According to a statement of probable cause, Salkill suffered a blow to the face during the altercation, and he was treated at Cox Monett Hospital.

Skipper was transported to the Barry County Jail, where he was charged with second degree assault on a law enforcement officer.

At his arraignment on Nov. 14, Skipper entered a plea of not guilty. A disposition hearing has been scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 3, 2012, before Judge Victor Head.

Skipper was released on $10,000 bond.

The second arrest was made by Deputy Terry Burgess after a search warrant was served at a residence in Mano.

Officers seized approximately one pound of marijuana, a digital scale, several marijuana pipes, a marijuana grinder and $236 in cash. Schultz was subsequently taken into custody.

According to the statement of probable cause, Schultz traveled to Texas on a number of occasions to purchase marijuana.
