At approximately 8:09 p.m. Clay County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the 2500 block of Acorn Creek Road in reference to a disturbance.

Upon arrival, they made contact with the victim who stated she had been at work when her daughter, Jacqueline Rivers, 24, called her to ask if she could come over and see her son. She told Rivers “no” because it was too late and her son needed to get to bed, according to the arrest report.

Once the victim came home from work, Rivers was standing outside demanding to see her son. The victim told Rivers to leave, but she proceeded to enter through the front door of the home without permission.

Portions of the arrest report have been removed, however, it is noted that an altercation occurred between Rivers, her mother and another female victim inside the home.

Rivers’ mother was knocked to the floor. While on the floor, Rivers proceeded to bite, choke and hit her, according to the arrest report.

Deputies reported that they saw an abrasion on the back of her neck, a small cut on the bridge of her nose, a small abrasion on the left side of her neck, multiple lacerations on her right arm and two to three-inch lacerations on her left forearm.

A second female victim made statements to deputies but it has been removed from the arrest report.

It is noted that Rivers appeared to be under the influence of narcotics due to “making numerous statements that did not make any sense,” deputies said.

Minor injuries and a five to six-inch scratch mark were found on the second victim’s left shoulder, as well as a small scratch on the back of her left arm.

Inside the home, deputies saw a broken coffee maker and cupcakes and cookies scattered all over the kitchen floor. The pantry door was unhinged and laying on top of the coffee maker. Pieces of the wall, where the pantry door used to be connected, were damaged with several pieces of the wall on the floor, the arrest report said.

The mother’s vehicle had three dents on the front driver and passenger sides, the report said.

Rivers resisted deputies' attempts to place her into custody which resulted in minor damage to a neighbor’s vehicle. Once deputies successfully placed Rivers into custody, she laid across the backseat and kicked a deputy in the face, the report said. That same deputy read Rivers her Miranda Rights and she told him she did not want to talk.

Rivers uttered multiple statements while being transported to the Clay County Jail, according to deputies, but they have been removed from the report.

Rivers was booked into Clay County Jail and faces two charges of battery during a burglary, one charge of resisting an officer with violence, one charge of battery on an officer and vandalism of $1,000 or more. There is no bond set for Rivers.
