Youngstown woman with gun arrested at Austintown bar
A Youngstown couple landed in jail early Monday after police say they were called investigate a report that someone was waving a gun during a fight outside an Austintown bar.
Officers say they broke up a fight next to cars parked outside Shotz Bar N Grille on Oakwood Avenue just after 2 a.m.
Police say when they first asked 34-year-old Rose Jackson and her 36-year-old husband Michael Jackson if they had a gun, neither answered.
Rose Jackson told officers that she was struck by a woman, and she struck the woman back. Her husband told police that he had been hit by a security officer at the bar.
An officer says in the police report that Rose Jackson eventually admitted that she had a gun, which police found in her pocket. The report says the pistol had a round in the chamber and a partially loaded magazine.
She was arrested on charges of failure to inform police that she had a weapon and using a weapon while intoxicated.
Her husband was jailed on a warrant for failing to appear in court on a prior charge.
