Linda Marks-Higginbotham was booked into the Trumbull County Jail Monday on charges of resisting arrest, criminal trespass, disorderly conduct, and failure to disclose personal information.

A 63-year-old Warren woman has pleaded not guilty to four charges filed following an incident on the last day of early voting in Warren.

Linda Marks-Higginbotham was booked into the Trumbull County Jail Monday on charges of resisting arrest, criminal trespass, disorderly conduct, and failure to disclose personal information following her arrest at the early voting site next to the Trumbull County Board of Elections on Youngstown Road SE shortly before 11 a.m.
According to police records, Marks-Higginbotham called 911, claiming a poll worker assaulted her.

The report from the Trumbull County Sheriff was not immediately available. However, 21 News spoke with Marks-Higginbotham by phone after she bonded out of jail Monday.

Marks-Higginbotham alleges that a poll worker could not find her voting information, so Marks-Higginbotham says she attempted to find her voter information on the computer herself. Marks-Higginbotham claims the poll worker snatched the computer mouse from her hand.

Warren Police and Sheriff’s Deputies were called to investigate, and Marks-Higginbotham was arrested.

Her bond was continued after she pleaded not guilty during an arraignment in Warren Municipal Court Tuesday morning.
