Woman held after allegedly making threats against law enforcement

3/4/2017 8:56:21 AM

On March 3 at 11:13 p.m. a Denver woman was contacted on Interstate 70 just east of the Agate exit (mile marker 340) after reports she threatened to kill police officers.

Law enforcement made contact with Jasmine Faith Delores Johnson, 26. Shots were fired; neither the suspect nor officers were hit by gunfire.

Johnson is being held without bond at the Arapahoe County Detention Center on a previous warrant out of Broomfield.

Additional counts are anticipated after Friday night’s incident is fully investigated. Johnson’s booking mug is not being released at this time.

Criminal charges are merely a formal accusation that an individual has committed a crime.  A defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.

This is an ongoing investigation involving Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, Elbert County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado State Patrol and the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

The case will be heard in Elbert County Combined Courts.
