A jail administrator’s wife in Wynne, Arkansas allegedly pulled a gun and detained four black students who were going door-to-door for a school fundraiser on Aug. 7.
WMC-TV reports that “four teenagers were going door-to-door selling discount cards for the high school football program. The Wynne School system said two of the students wore school jerseys.”
Wynne Police Chief Jackie Clark said the officers responded to a “suspicious persons” report and found 46-year old Jerri Kelly holding a gun on four juveniles who were lying on the ground.
Jerri was charged four counts of aggravated assault, false imprisonment and endangering the welfare of a minor, but Jerri did not have a mugshot taken because of a “medical issue,” according to Cross County Sheriff David West (pictured).
West insisted Jerri received “no special treatment,” even though her husband is Cross County Jail Administrator Joe Kelly,
