On Thursday 10/28, Officers responded to a domestic call, of which Jevon ‘Izzy’ Ransom (24) was ruled as the aggressor and arrested for for assault against his girlfriend. According to a MNPD report, Jevon and his girlfriend were arguing because he had been speaking to a girl that lives upstairs. Per the victim and a witness, when they came into the apartment he refused to let her leave, slammed her head into a sofa, and then punched her in the head. The victim fell to the ground and was eventually able to get up and exit the apartment where she could call police.
Jevon is currently on probation from an April DUI, also involving his girlfriend, in he was driving a vehicle on 440, with the front end completely destroyed by a crash, and the air bags still smoking from being deployed. Both were so intoxicated that neither knew they had been in an accident. They were leaving a friend’s party in Vine Hill, in which it was reported he had drank a substantial amount of Paul Mason brandy, and there were empty bottles of LTD Whiskey in both door panels of the vehicle.
Ransom has several old assault charges, both against family members and another against this same victim/girlfriend. In January of 2016 he held his her to the ground and punched her in the face in the presence of both a witness and their 3 month old child. He then pulled out a handgun and pointed at her.
Earlier this month, Ransom fell for the old probation officer trick, where he was told he wouldn’t be drug tested anymore… so what did he do – smoked right up, according to him. His next check in should be interesting, since this also violations his terms of probation by having a new arrest.
Ransom was released on his current charger after posting a $2500 bond.
