24-year-old Rysheka Conrad was charged with aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a weapon after she began to argue with her child’s father about visitation to their child and a witness saw her point a gun at him.
On October 31st, Memphis Police Officer Middlebrook responded to an aggravated assault call to the residence of 3501 Hicky Road. He met with Terrico Clarriett who stated that he was going to allow his child’s mother, Rysheka Conrad, to pick their child up. Clarriett stated that he changed his mind when Conrad showed up and an argument ensued. He showed Middlebrook the court documents pertaining to their visitation. After he denied her he said that Conrad pulled a black Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm and pointed it at him then said “I’ll blow your ass off.” During questioning, Conrad admitted to having the gun on her side but never pointed it at Clarriett and once police were called, she put the gun in her car.
Clarrriett’s sister, Precious Dotson, stated that she was in her home when she looked out the window and saw Conrad pacing back and forth. She stated that she saw Conrad pointing the gun at Clarriett. A second witness, Jasmine Rucker, a friend of Conrad’s, said that she did have the gun by her side, but she never pointed the gun at him. Officer Middlebrook confiscated the gun and it was tagged in the evidence room at 201 Poplar Avenue.
Rysheka Conrad was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a weapon. She was later released on a $20,000 bond.
