Police charged a woman with tampering with a witness after she allegedly threatened the person.

Jasmine Irby, 20, address unknown, was charged April 4 with third-degree harassment and tampering with a witness.

According to a police report, Irby's brother was charged with assault causing injury. The report said Jasmine Irby allegedly called the alleged victim of her brother's assault and asked the person to drop the charges.

When the alleged victim said no, Irby allegedly responded by saying, "If you want to stay living in your house you need to drop the charges, and this is not a threat to your life, but I know where you live and who you hang out with."

Officials said Irby also made a comment about putting her hands on the victim, and these alleged incidents made the alleged victim fear for the physical safety of herself and her child.

After police called Irby with no response, the report said Irby allegedly called the alleged victim back and said "… we ain't scared of nobody."
