A woman is in custody after police said she put a gun to an Oxford Police Officer’s head on Sunday.
The incident happened on March 3, at 1:58 a.m. at the Double Quick gas station in the parking lot.
The initial officer arrived and observed a very large crowd had gathered. While walking the parking lot, the officer saw a fight between two males next to a gas pump.
The officer went to break up the fight and began pulling on the male that was on top. At that point, the officer described feeling a cold, metal object pressed on their temple. The officer quickly turned and was able to remove the firearm from the suspect, Jacqueline Denise Giles (36 of Oxford, MS). Giles was taken into custody without further incident.
The gun ended up being stolen from Oxford in 2020.
“This incident should remind everyone why law enforcement says nothing is ever routine. There’s a reason why we stay on alert. There’s a reason why we take every call seriously. There’s a reason why more than one officer shows up on a stop or a call,” said Chief Jeff McCutchen.
Giles was arrested and booked for Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer and Possession of a Stolen Firearm. She was given a bond of $275,000 by the Municipal Court Judge.
“This incident could have been deadly if not for the calm response of our officers. This is now twice in less than two weeks that a call could have resulted in a tragedy. I’m proud of our officers and their dedication and we will continue to work hard to keep violent people out of this community!” said Chief McCutchen.
