Four people, who all live in the 1800 block of Brookside Drive in Edgewood, were charged after Harford police broke up a large fight in the area Aug. 11.
Harford County sheriff's deputies were first dispatched to the neighborhood shortly before 6:30 p.m. for a report of a fight in progress, according to charging documents. At first, deputies were unable to find anyone complaining of an assault and pulled into the 1900 block of Brookside Drive.
There, a woman, Sharon Jackson, told deputies her daughter was assaulted in the neighborhood and led police to the area, according to charging documents.
Jackson was yelling at several women and deputies tried to calm her down while requesting back-up, according to charging documents. The deputy had to leave Jackson as another woman, known as Nae-Nae or Danielle, approached her with a glass bottle over her head.
The deputy pushed Nae-Nae back, removed the bottle and was going to arrest her when another woman, Tameira Jackson, approached the crowd, according to charging documents.
Then, Sharon Jackson allegedly started to hit two other women, later identified as Dominique and Jackline Pollins, who ignored Sharon Jackson and allegedly continued to punch Tameira Jackson, according to charging documents.
A second deputy arrived to help the first try to stop the fight, but Dominique and Jackline Pollins allegedly ignored police. Throughout the fight, several men and women were also trying to climb over the two deputies to reach the three fighting women.
One of the deputies ordered Dominique Pollins to stop and threatened to tase her and when she didn't, he tased her on her right ride, which caused her to stop, according to charging documents. She stayed on the ground until a third deputy could arrest her.
Meanwhile, one of the original deputies headed back in the fight to help the other one get Jackline Pollins off Tameira Jackson and other women in the group and were able to arrest Jackline Pollins.
Deputies also attempted to arrest Sharon Jackson because she was allegedly being disorderly and confrontational to other women on the scene, according to charging documents. When they tried, however, a man, David Smith, allegedly interfered.
Smith continued to allegedly try and pull Sharon Jackson from police even as deputies pushed him away from the woman and asked him to leave the area, according to charging documents.
Several deputies attempted to arrest Smith as well; he allegedly resisted, swung his arms back in an attempt to strike deputies and punched one in the groin area, according to charging documents. Deputies threatened to tase Smith, who allegedly continued to resist.
After tasing Smith twice, Smith was still allegedly resisting, but deputies were able to arrest him. He was then taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center with minor cuts.
Tameira Jackson was also taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center for treatment, as was a juvenile who had been hit in the head with a wrench, allegedly by Dominique Pollins.
The juvenile, who had a lump on his head, identified Dominique Pollins.
As a result of the incident, Dominique Pollins, 26, of the 1800 block of Brookside Drive, was charged with first-degree assault, disorderly conduct, failure to obey a lawful order and three counts of second-degree assault.
Jackline Pollins, 25, of the 1800 block of Brookside Drive, was charged with disorderly conduct, failure to obey a lawful order and two counts of second-degree assault.
Sharon Jackson, 50, of the 1800 block of Brookside Drive, was charged with disorderly conduct and two counts of second-degree assault and David Smith, 53, of the 1800 block of Brookside Drive, was charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing justice, failure to obey a lawful order, second-degree assault and two counts of resisting arrest.
