An arraignment has been continued in the case of a Leavenworth man who is accused of firing shots at a deputy during a pursuit.

Anthony J. Robertson, 33, is charged with aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer, criminal discharge of a firearm at an occupied vehicle, criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer and interference with a law enforcement officer.

The crimes are alleged to have occurred July 6.

Robertson is accused of leading deputies from the Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office on a chase that began in the area of 207th Street and Kansas 92 Highway.

During the pursuit, Robertson allegedly fired shots at a vehicle driven by Cpl. Sarah Flaherty of the Sheriff’s Office.

Following the vehicle pursuit, Robertson and his passenger, Shauntel M. Cornelius, allegedly fled on foot. They were apprehended the following day.

Robertson’s arraignment had been scheduled for Wednesday in Leavenworth County District Court. But Robertson’s attorney, Clinton Lee, requested a continuance.

“We’re still going over discovery,” Lee said.

County Attorney Todd Thompson said he did not have an objection to the continuance.

The arraignment was continued until Oct. 17.

Robertson also is facing burglary and theft charges in a separate case for allegedly breaking into the Burger King in Lansing last year. Arraignment for this case also has been continued until Oct. 17.

Robertson also has been accused of violating probation in a case stemming from a 2016 drug charge.

He remains in custody at the Leavenworth County Jail.

Cornelius also is facing charges in connection to the July 6 pursuit. She is accused of throwing objects at the patrol vehicle driven by Flaherty during the chase.

Cornelius is charged with felony counts of aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and interference with law enforcement as well as misdemeanor charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal littering.
