According to the affidavit, police pulled over the car Alexandra Jackson was a passenger for tailgating and speeding at the intersection of 12th Avenue South and Wedgewood Avenue. Police determined she had consumed a large amount of alcohol.

Police said when she exited the vehicle, she started making demands. They said she was angry over the traffic stop and raised her hand in an angry manner toward the officer.

Alexandra Jackson struck the officer in the chest and was then told she was going to be placed under arrest, according to police. She struck the officer again and ran to her car to try to get away.
