Police were called to the Riverview apartments on a report of a fight that evening, and found the unidentified 44-year-old victim bleeding from a wound near his eye.
The man told police he and the suspect, 49-year-old Tammie Elaine Johnson, were at a neighbor’s home when an argument broke out. In addition to being upset she couldn’t get any money out of him to purchase crack, he said, “they were arguing because Tammie wanted to be with him but he was not interested in her.”
Johnson didn’t deny assaulting the man. In fact, she reportedly told police that after the neighbor had kicked ’em out and they decided to resolve their differences in the parking lot, she stopped by her own apartment real quick like and armed herself with olives. She said she did so because she knew she couldn’t take him.
Silly crackhead! No martini for you!
“I felt that her intent was to use the jar as an offensive weapon,” the officer wrote in the arrest report. “So she was charged with aggravated assault.”
