Jenelle Evans, from “Teen Mom 2” is heading to court to plead her case in front of a jury on charges of assault and battery, according to Radar Online, Dec. 11, 2015. Jenelle is accused of throwing a glass at Jessica Henry who happens to be the girlfriend of Jenelle’s ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith. The jury trial will be held sometime next year and Jenelle along with her attorney will be notified by mail when the date is determined.
The incident allegedly happened at Jenelle’s home when Nathan arrived to gather his things, and he brought his new girlfriend along. Jenelle told the police officer that when she went outside, Jessica got out of the truck causing Jenelle to fear for her life. She said the jar was filled with water, but when she threw the water at Jessica, the jar slipped out of her hand. Jessica’s reflexes were excellent as she caught the jar and threw it back at Jenelle. The jar hit Jenelle in the back with such force the jar broke.
Even though this explanation sounds feasible, the police officer investigating the scene and taking the report does not believe her. The broken glass was not in the right place to support Jenelle’s story and he could not find any redness or bruises on her body from the mason jar hitting her.
The officer wrote, “This would have made the broken glass somewhere farther in the driveway, “I looked and did not observe any redness or any other injury to the arrestee’s back.”
The officer took Nathan’s statement, “While he (Nathan) was loading up his property into the bed of his truck, he looked up and observed the arrestee [Evans] throw something threw [sic] the – front passenger window at the victim’s [Henry] head. This object was later discovered to be a glass mason jar. , “The witness [Griffith] stated that the victim [Henry] then began screaming in pain and the arrestee [Evans] ran back into the residence without saying a word.”
Jessica’s statement gives her account of what happened. The officer wrote, “The victim stated that she was sitting in the front passenger seat of the pickup looking at her phone when all of a sudden, the suspect was standing next to her throwing a glass mason jar filled with water at her. The victim stated that the glass jar struck the right side of her head and shattered. The victim stated that she was in shock and the arrestee just ran back inside without saying anything. I did feel a large lump on the right side of the victim’s head. EMS was declined after I offered to call for them.”
The officer wrote, “I observed water inside of the truck along with glass pieces along the right front passenger seat, floorboard and outside on the ground just below the front right passenger door.”
Because the officer did not believe Jenelle when he took her statement, do you think the jury members will believe her? Post whether you would believe her when it seems the evidence shows she is not telling the truth.
