A black teacher from Central charged with assaulting white police officers when she lived in Kennett, Missouri three years ago, agreed to a plea deal of two misdemeanor counts.  Twenty-four year old Heather Ellis avoids a felony conviction for her part in a scuffle at Wal-Mart.  Eliis pleaded guilty to resisting arrest and peace disturbance.  She will be placed on probation for a year and must serve four days in jail plus attend anger managment classes. This stems from when she cut in line at Wal-Mart and brushed aside another customers' items on the converyor at the register. Police were called and she was accused of kicking one officer and using profanity when they tried to calm her. She moved to Louisiana after the incident and married a state trooper.
