A Davenport man wanted by Davenport and Illinois authorities was arrested Wednesday on multiple warrants.
Cedric C. Shivers, 25, was arrested at 11:11 a.m. Wednesday by Davenport police on gun and domestic charges related to a July incident as well as warrants from Rock Island County and the Illinois Department of Corrections.
According to Davenport police affidavits, authorities responded to a residence in the 1100 block of West 12th Street in the early morning hours of July 28 for a domestic incident. Once there, a resident told police that hours earlier Shivers had allegedly retrieved a firearm from his pocket, held it in view of the resident and returned it to his pocket before reportedly punching the resident three times in the head.
Shivers then reportedly left that residence in a vehicle and he subsequently filmed himself driving in a Facebook Live broadcast. He is barred from driving for three years due to being a habitual offender, Davenport police affidavits said.
Scott County Jail online records listed his Iowa charges as felony counts of eluding, felon in possession of a firearm and interference with a weapon along with misdemeanor charges of domestic with weapon, driving while barred and child endangerment.
Bond has been set at $20,000 for the Davenport incident, but Shivers had a no bond holds placed on him by both the Illinois Department of Corrections, which currently lists him as a fugitive, and Rock Island County.
According to online Illinois DOC records, Shivers was released on parole April 29, 2019, from the Illinois prison system after serving about 22 months in Illinois DOC for possession of a stolen vehicle, resisting an officer and criminal trespass to a residence from two 2016 Rock Island County cases.
