LaGrange Police have arrested a woman on two felony charges after she allegedly pulled a gun on another woman during a dispute over a cellphone.

Saturday morning, about 11:05 a.m., officers with the LaGrange Police Department were called to the 800 block of Georgia Avenue in reference to reports of a person with a gun.

Police arrived and made contact with the female complainant, who reported that she was involved in an ongoing dispute with a female, identified as Alisa Shandrel Jackson. According to the complainant, Jackson accused her of stealing a phone and a physical altercation ensued.

Once the altercation turned physical, Jackson reportedly retrieved a handgun from her vehicle and began making threats. Other individuals were then able to get the firearm away from Jackson, who left the area in a vehicle.

LaGrange Police officers later located and engaged Jackson in a short pursuit in her vehicle before eventually making contact and taking her into custody.

Jackson, age 34, was arrested and transported to the Troup County Sheriff’s Office where she was booked into the jail charged with Aggravated Assault and Fleeing and Attempting to Elude.
