Carbondale woman arrested after shots fired at deputies at local fishing lake

A Carbondale woman was arrested early Sunday morning at Osage County State Fishing Lake after numerous reports were received about a person discharging a weapon and yelling at campers.

According to a press release from the Osage County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to calls that came in around 11:28 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017, and encountered Laurie Dewey, 47, of rural Carbondale. The sheriff’s office reported that Dewey fired at deputies responding to the scene as they attempted to make contact with her. She then entered the lake while deputies were trying to negotiate with her, and a Kansas Highway Patrol K-9 dog was eventually deployed to retrieve her from the water.

Dewey was taken into custody at 1:25 a.m. Sunday, and was arrested on charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault, criminal discharge of a weapon, and impersonation of an officer. She was transported by Osage County EMS to a hospital, and then taken to the Osage County Jail, where she is being held on $150,000 cash surety bond.
