Staff report

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Jaelyn Alonsa Young, 22, was arrested early this morning and charged with battery, burglary of an occupied vehicle, grand theft of a vehicle, and property damage over $200 after allegedly pulling a woman from her car during a dispute over a man.

A Gainesville Police Department officer responded to the parking lot of LUX13 Apartments at 2021 NW 13th Street and saw Young and a man arguing. The officer noted that the victim was sitting by her car with her belongings on the ground nearby.

The victim told the officer that she had been sitting in her car with the man when they saw Young walking around the parking lot; she said the man asked her to wait in the car while he spoke with Young, so she did, but Young opened the passenger side door of the car and got in. Young allegedly began taking items from the glove box and throwing them out of the car, then got out of the car and went around to the driver’s side, where she reached inside the window, grabbed the victim by the hair, and pulled her out of the car. Young allegedly got in the car, put the vehicle in gear, and began to drive away.

The victim also told the officer that Young hit her car multiple times with a stick, kicked the driver’s side mirror, and broke a windshield wiper.

A witness took video of the altercation, and the officer reported that the video showed Young pulling the victim out of the car by her hair, then it showed Young in the driver’s seat and the car moving forward several feet.

Post Miranda, Young reportedly said that the man is her boyfriend and was cheating on her with the victim; she said she grabbed the victim’s hair in retaliation after the victim hit her, and she denied hitting the car with a stick.

Young was arrested in a similar incident in 2020 in which she pulled a victim out of a car. She was originally charged with burglary with battery and child abuse, but she entered a plea of nolo contendere to two counts of battery in exchange for a year of probation in October 2021. In October 2022, she was arrested in Columbia County on several charges including battery on a law enforcement officer and was sentenced to four years of probation after pleading nolo contendere to resisting an officer with violence. She has one felony conviction and four misdemeanor convictions.

Bail information is unavailable on weekends.

  • With anger issues like that no wonder he was looking to spend time with someone else.
    If they put her and the angry girl from the other day together in the detention facility, they could charge admission for the cat fight.
    The revenues could pay for their phone calls instead of tax dollars.

  • Maybe (wishful thinking?) this violent person will get real jail time now. Fights in jail would lead to a prison term which is what she deserves. Obviously, she has no respect for others or society.

  • Fighting over that fine young 🦌 to sire their next little ba$-💩 at taxpayer expense, no doubt

  • Maybe now she will get some time instead of being obsessed with the same dude who’s been cheating on her 😂
