A 25-year-old West Point woman is free on $7,500 bond on charges she cut her ex-boyfriend during a weekend dispute.

And the aggravated domestic violence charge could land Ladasmond Shanta Jackson back in jail on a two-year-old ID fraud case.

According to West Point Police Det. Jesse Anderson, Jackson was arrested Saturday night after the victim reported being cut at his home on Lone Oak Drive near Highway 45 Alternate North.

He received minor injuries to his arms and legs, the detective said of the victim.
Investigators arrested her at his residence but did not find a weapon, according to Anderson.

She was booked into the Clay County Jail at about midnight Saturday and posted bond Monday afternoon.
District Attorney Scott Colom acknowledged Jackson was placed on pretrial diversion on April 13, 2017, on the ID fraud charges.

She was arrested after taking a debit card belonging to Whitney Lenoir and using it several times to spend $69.62.

Jackson has not completed her pretrial diversion program, which would allow her to have her record cleared.

Colom said his office is reviewing whether to file paperwork to have Jackson's diversion revoked.
