If you’ve just been released from jail, you’d think you’d want to savor your freedom a bit before rushing off to commit another crime.
That wasn’t the case for one Fort Collins, Colorado woman who was arrested on charges of drugged driving, released on bond and then allegedly made a beeline to create a new crime scene.
As the Denver Post reported, 36-year-old Tanicia Carter was released on bond from the Larimer County Jail at 10:16 p.m. local time Thursday — and by 10:41 p.m. police received a call about an assault involving the woman.
It seems Carter had returned to target the victims of her initial crime, including the woman whose SUV she had crashed while allegedly under the influence of drugs.
The 34-year-old woman and her 40-year-old husband were apparently staying with Carter until Thursday afternoon, when Carter drove the couple’s SUV into several parked cars while the woman was in the vehicle with her.
The couple apparently went to stay in another home in Wellington, Colorado after the wreck, but they couldn’t escape Carter, her brother Therion and his wife Lakaiya Saunders.
The trio burst into the Wellington home and assaulted the couple with a baseball bat, police said.
Carter is back in jail, being held without bond, on charges of first-degree burglary, theft, assault, criminal mischief and violation of bond conditions.
Her brother and his wife were also jailed on charges of burglary and assault.
