Arrest Made After Overnight Shooting

Terre Haute - One woman is behind bars after an overnight shooting in Terre Haute.

On Thursday, March 15th around 10:30 P.M., THPD officers went to the 1400 block of 1st Avenue in reference to shots fired.

After arriving, officers spoke to the victims who stated Jasmine Jones, 23, was in their car when they got into an argument.

Jones exited the vehicle and fired two rounds outside of the car.

Jones then began to walk away from the scene.

Officers located Jones at which time she threw her handgun onto the sidewalk, causing the gun to fire another round.

Officers took Jones into custody at that time.

On the way to THPD headquarters, Jones began kicking squad car windows and doors.

Jones told the transport officer he was a "racist cracker and that his kids were going to die."

Jones also told the officer he hated black people and his kids didn't deserve to live.

While walking out of THPD headquarters, Jones spit through the window onto a THPD K-9 and stated that she would have killed that dog.

Jones was then taken to the Vigo County Jail and charged with battery by bodily waste, criminal recklessness, intimidation, carrying a handgun without a permit, and striking a law enforcement animal.

No one was hurt during the incident.
