A Pine Bluff woman was arrested Wednesday after she allegedly pointed a gun at two people the previous day.
When she was questioned, Mikasha Boston, 37, denied having a gun and also said she did not try to run over the alleged victims with her vehicle.
Deputy Prosecutor Jay Girard said when police responded to the reported armed disturbance, they met with a man who identified Boston as his girlfriend. He said she had called him and a second victim, another woman, and asked them to meet her. He said when they showed up, Boston pulled her vehicle in behind the one they were in and knocked on the window.
Girard said the man told police Boston pulled out a gun and stuck in his ribcage. He said the two struggled and she dropped the gun, then got back into her vehicle and tried to hit him and the other woman who told the same story as the male.
On Friday, Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $10,000 bond for Boston after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge her with aggravated assault on a family or household member and aggravated assault. She was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victims until the case is settled.
Boston said she would hire her own attorney.
