Gainesville woman arrested for threatening boyfriend with knife and slashing his bicycle tire


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Jasmine Alexis Clark, 32, was arrested early this morning and charged with domestic battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and property damage over $200 after allegedly threatening her boyfriend with a knife and slashing the tire on his bike.

An Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to Woodside Villas Apartments (7200 SW 8th Avenue) at about 1:10 a.m. this morning, where she reportedly found the victim at a friend’s apartment. The victim reportedly said that Clark had knocked on the door of his friend’s apartment, and when the friend opened the door, Clark rushed into the apartment with a knife. The victim said Clark walked toward him in a threatening manner, pointing the knife at him, and that he was in fear for his life.

The victim reportedly said he moved out of her way, and she slashed the tire on his bicycle, causing about $400 in damage. The blade reportedly broke off the knife upon impact, and Clark allegedly picked up the handle and used it to hit the victim in the face.

Clark has a juvenile criminal history but no adult criminal history other than driving without a valid license. Judge Susan Miller-Jones set bail at $75,000.

  • Dang! That’s an expensive bicycle tire – in more ways than one.

    There’s got to be some kind of profit selling those.

    • Quality bike tires aren’t much more than $50, with a few up around $90. Name brand tubes might cost $20 or $25. It sounds really hard to believe that it will cost $400 to fix unless she caused additional damage that wasn’t detailed.

  • Wow! I believe that’s the highest bail ever set by this judge on a person of her own race. Still definitely a discount, but wow… this must have involved someone personal to her. I would have guessed $750; that would have been more in line with her usual.

    Also, $400? The damage likely involved the bike’s rim as well.

  • Because of this arrest report, the repubs will push to amend the Florida statutes, and rewrite the legal meaning of the term “Hot Bicycle”.

    • Your village called. They want their idiot back. Simple case of someone stepping out on someone and she couldn’t handle it. Instead of dumping him she has gotten herself in a lot of trouble.

  • If the alleged victim said his bicycle tire costs $400 his testimony is immediately suspect. Ridiculous! 🚲
