Four people including Tyrus Thomas’ wife Jamie Patrice Thomas and Ben Gordan’s fiancee Sascha Smith, were arrested Thursday morning after two fights broke out at a party Chris Paul was hosting at the NC Music Factory in Charlotte.
Thomas was charged with DWI, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and resisting a public officer.
Thomas and three other women tried to rob another woman of her cell phone and purse before hitting a security guard at the scene, according to the police report.
When officers arrived, Thomas was in a car in the parking lot and tried to leave the scene, hitting a security guard with her car for the second time, police said.
Charlotte police then had to force Thomas out of the vehicle.
“Officers gained entry to the vehicle by breaking the driver window. Officers were able to open the door after breaking the window,” CMPD said in a statement. “A female inside of the vehicle, Shassity Stevenson, began pulling Thomas back inside of the vehicle away from the officers. During the struggle officers had to utilize force in order to extract Thomas from the vehicle via the driver’s side door of the vehicle.”
While officers were at the scene a separate fight broke out resulting in two more arrests. Michael Bernard Noel, 31, was charge with communicating threats, disorderly conduct and resisting an officer. Vanny Phillip McNeil, 32, was charged with resisting an officer.
