JONESBORO, Ark. – A lady’s boyfriend said she got so angry at him, she bit him on the chest and pulled a gun on him.
She now faces a number of charges over the alleged incident.
The situation began just after noon on Friday when Jonesboro Police Department Officer David Stout responded to the 800-block of West Monroe over an aggravated assault in progress where “two people were throwing bricks at each other.”
While enroute, talk on the radio suggested someone pulled a gun on someone else and threatening them. The suspect, Latresa Rena Spencer, 44, of Jonesboro, was said to have fled in a “PT Cruiser” but was pulled over in a Chevrolet HHR – a similar looking vehicle.
“Since Dispatch had put out on the radio and the victim said that she had already threatened to kill him with his own pistol, I took her into custody at gunpoint and notified Dispatch,” Stout reported. “She immediately began telling me that she did not have the gun and that she never had it. She claimed that the gun was under the love seat in the living room.”
Stout took Spencer back to the home where the altercation took place, where her boyfriend, Floyd Williams, 53, of Jonesboro, said Spencer had pulled a gun on him and threatened him. According to Williams, she then said she was going to take the gun and pawn it to get some money.”
The gun was located in the cushion of the couch and retrieved. A bullet was in the chamber.
A witness then reported he had arrived at his house from picking up oil at a store and saw Spencer standing in the yard, near the porch, pointing a pistol at the door where Williams was standing.
Spencer was arrested and taken to Craighead County Detention Center. She is facing charges of aggravated assault on a family or household member, possession of a firearm by certain persons, driving while license suspended, running a stop sign and fleeing in a vehicle at the sight of an officer. She was also listed as on parole.
