WOMAN SHOT BY POLICE PLEAS GUILTY TO AGGRAVATED ASSAULT ON OFFICERS

August 6, 2019 (Dalton) – Clinque Jashauana Jackson (34), formerly of 2610 Bouldercrest Road, Atlanta, entered a guilty plea today to one count of aggravated assault on a peace officer and was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Jim Wilbanks to serve 15 years in prison as part of a negotiated plea agreement in which all other pending charges were dismissed. Jackson along with co-defendant Parrish Smalley, aka Parrish Smaey, fled from Tennessee authorities after an alleged armed robbery at a Kohl’s department store in Cleveland, Tennessee on August 22, 2018. The chase led into Georgia and ended in Whitfield County. Mr. Smalley exited the vehicle and fled on foot after a Georgia State Trooper stopped the vehicle using a PIT (Pursuit Intervention Technique) maneuver which caused the vehicle to spin out. Smalley was arrested shortly thereafter and entered a guilty plea on February 19, 2019 to felony fleeing, felony theft, misdemeanor obstruction and driving under the influence. He received three years in prison followed by seven years suspended on banishment from Whitfield and Murray counties.

Jackson however brandished a firearm to law enforcement and continued to flee in the vehicle until a second PIT maneuver, this time performed by the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office, brought the vehicle to a stop. Officers from Hamilton County, Catoosa County, Tunnel Hill, Whitfield County and the Georgia State Patrol gave verbal instructions for her to put the gun down and exit the vehicle. Jackson ignored these instructions, exited the vehicle, and pointed the firearms towards at least one law enforcement officer. Officers from Hamilton County and Tunnel Hill shot Jackson a total of eight times after which she was taken into custody and provided medical care.

Jackson had a significant prior criminal history including over two dozen arrests and three prior felony convictions which involved robbery, theft, fleeing, obstruction and drug charges. She still faces the original armed robbery charges in Tennessee and it is anticipated that she will be extradited to Tennessee for that purpose. Jackson was repressed by Summerville attorney, Steve Miller. The State’s case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Baxter.
