A woman is in custody after allegedly holding a stolen gun against the temple of an Oxford police officer.

Law enforcement responded to a disturbance at the Double Quick parking lot in Oxford on Sunday just before 2 a.m. Once the initial officer arrived at the scene, it was noted that there was what was described as a very large crowd gathered at the gas station.

The officer claims to have spotted two males in a fight next to a gas pump and went to break up the altercation. While trying to pull one of the males off the other, a cold metal object was reportedly pressed against the officer’s temple.

However, the officer, whose identity has not been released, quickly turned and was able to remove the firearm from 36-year-old Jacqueline Denise Giles and the suspect was apprehended. The gun used in the incident wound up being stolen out of Oxford in 2020.

“This incident should remind everyone why law enforcement says nothing is ever routine. There’s a reason why we stay on alert,” OPD Chief Jeff McCutchen said. “There’s a reason why we take every call serious. There’s a reason why more than one officer shows up on a stop or a call.”

Giles is charged with aggravated assault on law enforcement officer and possession of a stolen firearm. She was given a $275,000 bond.
