JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Two people were taken to jail after a dispute in Jonesboro.

According to a police report, officers were called to the 1800-block of Cedar Heights around 1:40 Monday morning.

When officers arrived, the complainant was standing outside, pointing at a car.

She identified the suspects, Keshia Criglar, 25, and Lucrentia Sheppard, 28, both of Jonesboro, were in the car.

The complainant and Criglar started yelling and pushing each other.

Officer Trey Chism told the two to break it up and tried to separate them.

Criglar didn’t comply and began to push Chism. That's when Chism tased Criglar.

During that time, Sheppard took off running and Officer Heath Loggains chased after her.

The complainant told officers that Criglar and Sheppard came over and started beating on her door.

The report said Criglar was looking for a cell phone that was left at the house during an earlier fight.

The complainant did not open the door and that’s when Criglar and Sheppard started beating on the window.

The two women were taken to the Craighead County Detention Center.

During a vehicle search, officers found three white pills, later identified as acetaminophen and codeine, wrapped in a gum wrapper inside Criglar’s purse.

Criglar faces charges for drug possession and disorderly conduct. Sheppard was cited for public intoxication.
