She also allegedly damaged the front door after the man locked her outside while he waited for law enforcement to arrive.


Court documents reveal Jones told officers she remembered being upset with the victim because he would not celebrate with her after she got a job at Subway.

Jones said she didn’t remember anything else about the night, according to court documents.

A $15,000 bond has been set for Jones.
