38 Year Old Female Charged With Agg. Assault

On Feb. 4, 2021 Deputies responded to 29 Tindall Acres in reference to a person being disorderly.

Upon arrival they found 38-year-old Jennifer Ellis who had locked herself inside a pick-up truck. Ellis had a green canister to her mouth trying to ingest its contents. The deputy was able to get her from the vehicle. After exiting the vehicle Ellis threw food and a knife at the deputy and then fled on foot. The deputy was able to catch her, Ellis elbowed the deputy in the mouth. The deputy then wrestled Ellis to the ground. During the struggle Ellis was able to rip the deputy's radio's microphone and body camera off the deputy's shirt, she also tried to get the deputy's taser, but was unsuccessful. Ellis had ingested something and during the struggle the deputy inhaled some fumes from what ever it was that Ellis had ingested. After a struggle with Ellis, she was finally handcuffed and shackled without further incident.

The vehicle was checked for contraband so it could be safely released to its owner. Two used needles and one used Methamphetamine pipe were located behind the driver's seat near the center console. The green canister that Ellis was trying to ingest was OFF insect spray. Ellis was transported to St. Vincent's in Morrilton and checked out by medics.

After being released from the hospital Ellis was transported to the Perry County Detention Center where she was charged with Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Breaking or Entering, Interference with a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Arrest, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Criminal Trespass, Disorderly Conduct, and Fleeing on Foot.
