On Thursday, January 14, 2016, June Smith, 34, of Hannibal, Missouri, was arrested on a Monroe County warrant for felony hindering prosecution. The charge stem from her involvement in an officer-involved shooting that occurred in Monroe City, Missouri, on January 13, 2016. During the incident, Smith was in the company of Timothy Brokes Jr., who was wanted for questioning for a homicide and felony assault that occurred in Marion County on January 12, 2016. As a Monroe City police officer attempted to contact Brokes and Smith in Monroe City, gunfire between Brokes and the police officer was exchanged. Both Brokes and the Monroe City police officer were shot during the incident. Both sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
Smith is being held at the Marion County Jail on a $50,000 bond. The officer-involved shooting is being investigated by the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime Control.
The charge for which the individual was arrested is mere accusation and is not evidence of guilt. Evidence in support of the charge must be presented before a court of competent jurisdiction whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
