Bear – The Delaware State Police have charged 19-year-old Jada Blake of Newark, with multiple offenses including felony assault, stemming from an altercation that took place in the drive-thru lane of a Bear area restaurant, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Michael Austin.
Austin said the incident occurred at approximately 3:40 p.m., Saturday, August 24, 2019, in the drive-thru lane of the Chik-fil-a, located at 1101 Quintillo Drive in Bear. Blake was the operator of a vehicle that was waiting in the drive-thru lane when another vehicle, operated by a 21-year-old female, attempted to pull in front of her.
Blake accelerated abruptly and blocked the vehicle from moving forward, then exited her vehicle and confronted the other driver, according to Austin.
Upon making contact with the other driver Blake allegedly began striking her in the head and face through her open window. The altercation then continued outside the vehicle at which time Blake intentionally kicked the victim in the abdomen, knowing that the victim was pregnant, said Austin. After the altercation, Blake returned to her vehicle and continued to wait for drive-thru service.
Responding Troopers located Blake still in the drive-thru lane and took her into custody without incident. The female victim was transported to an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries and for evaluation.
Blake was transported to Troop 2 where she was charged with the following:
Assault 2nd Degree
Reckless Endangering 2nd Degree
No Proof of Insurance
Possession of Marijuana
Blake was then arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court #11 and released on $5103.00 unsecured bail.
