Charges: Victim not having any of it from thieving ex-boyfriend
PARKLAND, Wash. -- A Parkland resident wasn't having any of it from her thieving ex-boyfriend, refusing to lie to prosecutors for him and saying she hoped they slapped him with a restraining order to boot, according to charges filed Tuesday in Pierce County Superior Court.
According to the charging documents, the victim called 911 when her ex-boyfriend, 51-year-old Otis Jackson Jr., showed up at her home shortly before 1:30 a.m. Monday and kicked down her door. Jackson reportedly took the victim's new TV and disc player before driving off in his truck.
Officers stopped Jackson 20 minutes later and arrested him despite his claims that the TV and disc player belonged to him, according to the charging documents.
Jackson reportedly called the victim from jail and apologized. According to the charging documents, he told the victim she had change her story and "tell them it was a false statement, that it really didn't happen that way."
The victim scoffed at the idea that she would lie and tell prosecutors that the stolen items belonged to Jackson, that he didn't kick down the door and that it was a case of mistaken identities.
According to the charging documents, the victim ended the conversation by telling Jackson, who has been charged with burglary, theft and tampering with a witness, that she hoped "they also slap on a restraining order."
You go, girl.
