TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Authorities say a fight broke out during a block party on Adams Street early Tuesday morning, leading to the arrest of a Tallahassee woman for an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police say Tierra Jackson, 23, was wielding a baseball bat while leading a group of females to attack a woman over a prior argument on Facebook.

The victim and other witnesses claimed that the other females in the group with Jackson were holding a knife and a gun, but did not appear threatening.

During the attack, the victim got into a vehicle, and a second person got into the passenger seat. Jackson allegedly hit the car’s front passenger window with the bat, leaving a small crack in it.

According to arrest documents, the victim told police that she feared Jackson was going to break the window, drag her out of the car, and beat her to death. She said Jackson had made multiple threats on Facebook over the last few days to kill her.

As the victim sped away to escape the attack, the passenger was not fully inside the vehicle and fell out, suffering abrasions to her knees.

Officers eventually caught and detained Jackson and a second woman, who police say had a knife. Once detained, police say both suspects told conflicting stories and appeared to be dishonest in their accounts.

Because the other woman was not suspected of using the knife in a threatening manner, she was not arrested.

Jackson was taken to the Leon County Detention Facility without incident. She is being held on $3,000 bond.
