Lanetta stated she went home to get some clothes and Kayla attacked her by hitting her on the side of the head, then grabbed her by the hair and continued hitting her. The officer noted that she had no obvious signs of injury.

Officer Johnson then spoke with Kayla, who stated she’s been in a continuous argument with Lanetta because they are currently going through a divorce. She said Lanetta got angry and attacked her by choking and hitting her multiple times. The officer noted there were visible scratch marks on Kayla’s neck, but due to inconsistent statements a primary aggressor could not be determined.

Kayla Jackson was arrested and charged with domestic assault. Her bond was set at $1,000.
