Local News

A Longview woman was arrested after the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office said she threw a brick and hit a man during an argument.

According to our newspaper partner, the Longview News-Journal, Nadia Rae Jackson, 27, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She was released Wednesday on $20,000 bond.

Deputies were called at 8:43 p.m. Tuesday to the 1300 block of FM 2906 near Easton.

The man told a deputy that Jackson had thrown a brick at his head because she was angry about possible infidelities, a report said. The deputy noticed three bleeding, swollen knots on the man’s head.

Two other witnesses corroborated the man’s account, the report said.

While this was taking place, another deputy had found Jackson on Jett Drive in Lakeport. The deputy said she refused to cooperate, would not tell him what had occurred and continually stated that “she was not a ‘snitch,’ ” the report said.

Jackson was arrested after the deputies compared interviews, the report said.
