She is scheduled be sentenced at 1:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 20, by President Judge James G. Arner.
Myers currently remains free after being released on her own recognizance.
The charges stem from an incident that occurred in October of 2018.
Details of the case:
According to a criminal complaint filed on November 2, 2018, by Officer Fox, of the Clarion Borough Police Department, he was dispatched on October 22, 2018, to a report of parents fighting at the football field behind Clarion High School.
Officer Fox arrived at the scene and spoke to the school athletic director who reported a woman was refusing to leave after being asked to do so because of a fight she was causing with other parents in the stands. Officer Fox then approached the cluster of people, where he noted one female, later identified as Satiney Myers, was loudly arguing with a group of people. Officer Fox then asked Myers to step to the side to speak to him.
According to the complaint, Myers immediately became argumentative and said people were upset with her “f****** language” and allegedly went on to state she “can say whatever the f*** she wants because its f****** freedom of speech.” Officer Fox then asked Myers to lower her voice and “quit cussing,” and Myers allegedly responded that she could “cuss all she f****** wants.”
Officer Fox then told Myers that “saying the ‘F’ word out in public loudly” is not freedom of speech, it is being disorderly and explained she could be arrested for disorderly conduct.
The complaint notes that when asked to calmly explain what had happened, Myers began shouting that her son was being racially profiled by a Clarion football player and stated the player had been calling her son racial slurs the entire length of the game. She also wanted to know why the Clarion player was allowed back on the field playing while her son was benched and not permitted to play.
Officer Fox asked Myers if there was an altercation on the field, and Myers stated that there was, “but it was stopped before it got physical.”
Myers was extremely upset about the entire situation and how her son was being treated. Officer Fox had to tell her multiple times to keep her voice down and stop swearing, but Myers refused to comply, according to the complaint.
Myers then became argumentative and questioned why Officer Fox was speaking to her and not the other parents, and he explained that after gathering her information, he would speak to the others. Myers allegedly continued to shout and claim she was being singled out because of her race, the complaint states.
Officer Scheckler then arrived at the scene and also asked Myers to “tone it down” and stop yelling. Myers ignored his request and was also upset at being asked to stay while Officer Fox spoke to others involved, stating she “needs to get going home and she’s not standing out in the f****** cold,” the complaint indicates.
She also called Officer Scheckler an “f****** cracker,” the complaint indicates.
Officer Fox then obtained a video of the incident where Myers is visible, shouting and swearing at multiple parents in the stands. The video also shows the Clarion Area athletic director telling Myers to leave, and Myers refusing to do so, and then becoming argumentative and aggressive with the athletic director, according to the complaint.
