She allegedly picked up two billiard balls and hurled them at Jones. One ball struck Jones in the face, but the second ball missed her. A witness, Heather Daugherty, corroborated the story, according to the news station. 

After the assault, the suspect reportedly fled the scene. When police arrived, they found Priola in a convenience store in the back room of the Red Dog Saloon. They arrested her for assault and battery and transported her to Oklahoma County Jail. On the way, Priola had a meltdown, according to police.

The woman allegedly became hysterical and belligerent, and resorted to offering the officers “all of her money” if they’d just take her home instead of to prison. The officers refused, so Priola reportedly began screaming and banging her head against the window of the patrol car, and even tried to kick the window out.

Priola ended up being booked for assault with a dangerous weapon in addition to the assault and battery charge. Yahoo Lifestyle has reached out to the Oklahoma City Police Department for more details on the case.
